History of the Building

Pushing Petals Calgary

This two storey frame building was constructed by John R Hunter, who came to Calgary in 1901 and lived in Hillhurst by 1906. He acquired the lot in 1908 and built the house for around $600. Around 1910 he sold the building to a plasterer Theodophilus Thompson. The building has housed different groceries and confectionaries (for example: The Famous Riley Park Grocery & Confectionary and Kim’s Grocery). Before the advent of large-scale supermarkets and household freezers, shopping patterns were based on daily needs and access to the nearest grocery store. The stores in the Hunter Block were once one of the few local small-scale food stores.
