John Murphy and his brother Michael founded J. & M. Murphy Company in 1873 as one of 20 dry goods businesses in Halifax.
Now owned by a fourth generation of Murphys, the family firm has evolved into a modern retail business featuring the highest quality brands of workwear and work boots, as well as a wholesale operation supplying linens to Maritime universities, hospitality and healthcare facilities..
There we offer our customers a wide selection of footwear and clothing featuring brands such as Carhartt, Timberland Pro, Blundstone, and Helly Hansen. You’ll also find sales staff with the experience, knowledge and inventory to fit you with the workwear that’s best for you.
If there's a secret to our longevity as a company, it's in keeping up to date with our clients’ needs for a good selection and value. It's a tradition we're dedicated to continue.
