Waddell’s – The Wonderland of Televisions and Appliances

The other week in the comments, reader JAYPEE asked:

Any chance you have any info on a place called Wadell’s which was located on University Ave. at the corner of Janette [EDIT] Cameron. They used to sell appliances and electronics.

Here you are JAYPEE.

I’m not sure about the timelines for this business, the photos on this page are from the Windsor Star in December 1952. What I do know is, that the building is still standing, but is now vacant. It spent its last few years as the Derby Bingo. If you drive past you can see the base of the frame for the neon sign on the roof on the front of the building along University Ave.

Mr. Waddell.
