    See Friday/Saturday’s Vancouver Sun for

    Ad for 999c Stores in the May 23, 1912 Vancouver World. /PNG

    for 1150 Commercial Drive

    ….There is also a marvellous ad for “The 999c Stores,” which offered “‘Almost Everything’ from 5c to $10.” The borders of the ad feature “999c” repeated over and over – 21 999c’s running down the sides, and six 999c’s running across the top and bottom, in rows of three. It is absolutely hilarious – you can check it out in the online version of this column at vancouversun.com…..

    They ran this ad for weeks in early 1912. “The 999 Store” as it was called lasted only that season and was either replaced by or morphed into Robert Tucker Novelties which stayed there until 1915.
