Family Joins The Store
Our family store grew when my brother Maurice joined the business soon after being discharged from the RCAF. A short time later, I also joined after finishing high school.
The Jack Nash business flourished in the time after the end of the Second World War, as service men were returning to St. Catharines, needing new clothes. This was a happy time for everyone.
The war was finally over, and after years of drab wartime attire, everyone was eager to dress in beautiful colors and fresh new styles. At that time, our business was devoted exclusively to the making of men's clothing, mainly suits, jackets and trousers. Since we carried no ready-to-wear items in our early days, everything we sold was made to measure.
