Dad bought his first location in spring of 1988, in the Millbrook Mall. Opened Union Street in 1990, and Deer lake in 1993. Opened Murphy Square location in 2003. I am proud to be following in my father’s foot steps, Hopefully I can be as successful as he has been, over his 26 year career with MB.

Just wish I made the move 15 years earlier.
