Kingsmill’s: A Unique Store Rich with History

Kingsmill’s: A Unique Store Rich with History

 

We’ll still see them in movies and old television shows from time to time, those grandiose department stores featuring multiple levels, high-end products and manually operated elevators. And in nearby London, Ontario, one of those rare examples of classic architecture still exists, a haven for shoppers who enjoy life’s finer things and tourists who appreciate a glimpse into the past.

Kingsmill’s, dating back to 1865, is London’s oldest and most respected department store. The four floors of the store, located at 130 Dundas St., offer a wide range of products including home furnishings, fine china and collectibles, fashions, cosmetics, linens, gifts, kitchenware, luggage and much more.

That sounds like a winner to the wide variety of vendors that will take part in the weekend long Kris Kringle Market, Nov. 29 through Dec. 1, at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, located at 3755 Tonawanda Creek Road in Amherst.
