I have a deep personal love for my Hudson Bay Blanket, inherited from my parents, Jim and Barbara McAleer, who bought it in the 1930s when they were newly weds. A dry cleaner tried to steal it from me about 15 years ago. I told him I was going court over it and was told in found the next day! I'm now going to check out the prices on the HBC website. Never have checked. Your fan, NM
Thanks for the comment, Neil. Your story is not a unique one. Many of the HBC blankets get handed down from generation to generation to generation. They are very well made, last forever, and are priced accordingly. I hope you're sitting down when you see the price tag. The display in Banff, like those in most of the town, are very much aimed at Japanese tourists, who like to buy "only the best".
This past summer I'd spent a day wandering the streets of Banff with my dear friend, LestertheInvestor, and our lovely wives. Sylvia and I stopped by the Hudson Bay Co (HBC) store and spotted this clever display of blankets drapped over a canoe....
The coats are still around, although as they are made of wool they are pricey. I'd suggest plugging the following into your search engine. "Hudson's Bay Company Wool coat" or "jacket" See what pops up.
