Simpsons -> The Bay
The Bay -> Wal-Mart (Wikipedia claims Sears was located in between - was this true?)
Eatons -> Sears
Looks like it was The Bay -> Sears -> Wal-Mart. Just double-checked a few sources, and here's an ad from The Bay's opening day at STC in 1979 as part of a 240,000 sq ft expansion. Simpsons also had an ad that day touting "Kenmore Days" at all of its GTA locations, including STC (in what was the dying days of its association with Sears).Simpsons - > the Bay (there was no Bay here before this)
Sears - > took over Eatons location
Walmart took Sears old location.

Super-bump! 2.5 years later...Besides Robinson's, Hamilton also had The Right House (the building has been repurposed). The Right House had other locations, I believe Kitchener had one.
