In July 1905, a five-storey building opened at this site along Portage Avenue as the western Canadian flagship for the T. Eaton Department Store chain. Three additional floors were added in 1910. Interior renovations in 1927 were designed by local architect Arthur Edward Cubbidge and were built by the construction firm of Hazelton & Walin.
The building was demolished in 2002 to make way for a sports arena.
