Every meal is fresh

In the February 22 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star, the owners of the Murray’s restaurant chain decided to attract attention by creating an ad that took up an entire column of a page. I’ve included it here; I’ll meet you at the bottom of the ad!

Digging around in the Toronto city directories revealed that Murray’s was based in Montreal. There were actually seven Murray’s locations in the 1933 Toronto city directory, and there were approximately five or six locations in all directories right up until 1969, which is the last year that I can access.

Murray’s existed in Montreal up until 2009. The Montreal Gazette has an article on the closing of the last Murray’s.
