A four-story industrial building on the East Side is being sold “regardless of price.” Cash Cunningham, who recently auctioned the Statler, is auctioning the property on Saturday. The action begins at noon on-site.
The 91,000 sq.ft. brick building sits on 1.67 acres. Not much is known about the history of the building. One neighborhood resident believes it was originally a knitting factory. If so, it could have been “Monarch Knitting Co.” which lists a Doat at Genesee Street location in historical City Directories. From the History of Dunnville, Canada:
Another major textile firm in Dunnville was the Monarch Knitting Co. founded in 1903 by partners F.R. Lalor, J.A. Burns and George Orme. The company was llisted on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1911 and opened other plants in St. Catharines, Buffalo and St. Thomas. It became one of Canada’s largest textile producing firms and landed contracts to supply uniforms to National Hockey League teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs. Operations in Dunnville ceased in 1967.
A Royal Bedding Co. outlet has operated in the building for some time.
