Have you heard of Vassie’s Corner?

Historically known as “Vassie’s Corner”

Historically the corner of King Street and Canterbury Street in uptown Saint John was known as Vassie’s Corner. It was the site of a wholesale dry goods and woollen business originally established by William Vassie in 1832 and operated until after World War I. The site is also significant as the earlier building (before the fire) was the home of Benedict Arnold for six years while he was engaged in the shipping business in Saint John.

“Vassie’s Corner” was part of the painstaking restoration of this entire city block which is now known as Centerbeam Place.

The retail storefront on this corner is now available for lease. For more info click HERE
