50 Years Ago in Columbia: Hutchison & Sons

By JIM

In mid-June 1974, Raymond Hutchison sold C.R. Hutchison & Sons (aka Hutchison's S & T) hardware store to James Lewis Moore and Donald Harvey.

Mr. C.R. Hutchison bought John Jackman's saddle shop, located between Burkesville Street and the west corner, in 1909. Around 1918, A.D. Patteson bought a half interest, and the two worked as partners there until fire destroyed their business in the late summer of 1921. Shortly afterward, Patteson sold his share back to Hutchison, and the latter moved the business to temporary quarters in the Jeffries Hotel, later known as the New Adair. In 1922, the business moved to the Russell Building on the corner of Jamestown Street and the square, and in late 1929, it changed locations one last time into a newly-constructed building between Campbellsville Street and the east corner, one building removed from the Well Walk.

The first mention found of the establishment as "C.R. Hutchison & Sons" appeared in a December 31, 1929 advertisement. However, at least one son, Raymond, who started working in the store in January 1926, had bought a minority share some time prior to the ad. The store continued as Hutchison & Sons for several years until Raymond, the sole owner since 1959 (Mr. C.R. passed in 1950), sold the firm in 1974, as stated above.

Mr. Hutchison's farewell to his loyal customers appeared fifty years ago this week, in the July 11, 1974 edition of The Columbia Statesman.
