The Army & Navy Story



It all started with a dream and 3,178 Army boots. With a truck full of bargain merchandise, a bank loan, a simple no-frills philosophy and tremendous determination, Sam Cohen opened the first Army & Navy store in 1919. As a result of his business acumen it was soon to span the Canadian West and become Canada’s first discount department store chain.

Sam’s legacy has continued and persevered, and is still very much a family affair with the current President and CEO of Army & Navy, his granddaughter Jacqui Cohen.


I am so proud to be honouring his vision and to celebrate this iconic company.  

 - Jacqui Cohen, President & CEO
