Ward and Dewland was the first business to occupy the Bradley Block building on the north east corner of Simcoe and Athol Streets. Opened in 1920 by J. C. Ward and W. A. Dewland, this store was also later known as Ward's Dry Goods, then Ward's Department Store. It remained at this location until 1976. Fazio's restaurant is now at this location.
Ward's relocated to 33 King Street East and closed in 2015.
