End of an Era
After 148 years in business, a store that London could claim as its own, is closing down.
Kingsmill’s was a London landmark and an anchor to the downtown.
It was also a family owned business that survived through 5 generations of the same family.
I am grateful to have been able to share in part of the history.
It was 1990 when I started working in the Delivery Department and over the course of the next 13 years transitioned through various positions. My last position in the store was Inventory Control in the China Department.
Although it is sad to see the store close, it was a privilege to be part of a business that was so highly regarded.
Kingsmill’s will be missed. It’s memory will be treasured.
