It was known in the Canadian Tire world as store #059 and was located on the corner of Main and Legion Streets. It wasn't the biggest Canadian Tire store, probably one of the smallest and maybe it was packed to the ceiling and the aisles were narrow and not easy to get around. But when it was destroyed by fire in July 1996 we all soon found out how much it was missed. The Liverpool Canadian Tire opened on that location in 1969 and my uncle Earl West was manager. It had previously been located on Market Street. The Main/Legion Street location had a little of everything from paint and appliances to sports equipment and car parts. They had a few mechanics to repair your car on location or to do an MVI. Terry Connolly and Wayne Mansfield were 2 of the mechanics, working in the store was Sue Verge, Pam (Bolivar) Mansfield, Pam West, Steve Roberts, Vicki (Russell) Roberts, John Baker, and Steve Kempton are some of the staff that I recall. Russell Kennedy and George Vasil were a few owners that I remember. It was a very sad evening in July 1996, I was at work doing some extras getting caught up when I smelled smoke. I went to the front door to look out and saw smoke and heard sirens. At first glance it appeared it was Main Street Kwik Way but I soon saw the smoke coming from the Canadian Tire building. It wasn't long before the Liverpool Fire Dept. were at the scene and people from all over were there watching. The next day the fire was out but the building was a complete loss. A few weeks later we were all shocked to find out the owner of Canadian Tire chose not to reopen a new Canadian Tire in Liverpool.
