George Seale Armstrong was born in Grey County, Ontario and came to Edmonton in 1905. He opened a drug store at 435 Namayo Avenue in ca. 1907. The location of the store changed over time with the final site built in 1910 with an addition in 1912 at 10331-97 Street (formerly Namayo Avenue). George Armstrong became the first mayor of the united cities of Strathcona and Edmonton when he was elected in 1912. Armstrong Drug Store had several owners, the last being Stephanie Andrews, known as Tini to her customers. The Armstrong Drug Store ceased operations on December 10, 1993.
