43 Brock Street West, Uxbridge
Every long time resident of Uxbridge will remember when 43 Brock St W was at it’s glory.
In the late 1960’s Homan’s department store opened at this location. I’m sure I am not the only one who remembers going shopping at Homan’s for their back to school clothing. The building later became home to (famous to Uxbridge) Ballinger’s Better Buy. Ballinger’s at the time was the local version of BiWay meets the present day dollar store. The building was later home to La Petite Fleur florists.
The building was constructed on the site of the former Uxbridge Fire Department, which at the time had become an eyesore in the downtown.
It is ironic that this building, once a busy part of our downtown has been vacant for many years and has once again become an eyesore.
