Admin/Biographical History In 1887, M.A. Halliday opened a general store and, before long, it was doing more business than any other store in Bruce County, employing forty people. After Chesley's fire of 1888, the business was re-established under the name of Halliday & Stinson. During the early 1900s, the building became Ross & Warmington's General Store.
