Our History

The original store in 1880 as seen in the Meacham’s Atlas of PEI.

 

Taylor’s Jewellers is one of the oldest shops in the city of Charlottetown. Taylor’s was first opened in 1879 at 121 Grafton Street (the current home of Grand Senses Spa). Taylor’s has been proudly serving Islanders for just under 140 years and counting.

A gentleman named J.F. McKay operated a jewellery store at 121 Grafton street for a time but in 1879 his stock was purchased by G.H. Taylor and Taylor’s Jewellers was born. Mr. George Taylor had emigrated to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island from England. The family roots he put down in Charlottetown remain strong.
