Woodward's department store chain operated in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada for one hundred years, before its sale to the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC). In 1892, Charles Woodward established the first Woodward store at the corner of Main and Georgia Streets in Vancouver. On September 12, 1902 Woodward Department Stores Ltd. was incorporated and a new store was built on the corner of Hastings and Abbott Streets. Facing financial difficulties, Woodward's was sold to the Hudson's Bay Company in 1993. Woodward's was a central feature of the retail scene, especially in southwestern British Columbia, for much of the twentieth century. The chain was distinctive in that the stores included a large supermarket (the "Food Floor") as an adjunct or at some locations part of the department store. Many older western Canadians remember fondly Woodward's famous "$1.49 Day" sales, held the first Tuesday of every month. Woodward's had four house brands, Woodsonia, Woodcrest, Mercury, and Transonic. Woodsonia was the line for the best quality and value items, it was used for the hardgoods divisions such as hardware, housewares, small appliances, furniture, appliance and drug items. Mercury was Woodward's house brand for bicycles, trikes, wagons and sporting goods items. Woodcrest was Woodward's house brand for domestic department, and drug store department items. Lastly, Transonic was Woodward's house brands for TV's and electronic items.
