 The Beaurepaire commercial venture started in 1928 when Edouard Lamoureux asked for a permit to operate a service and gas station on Beaconsfield Boulevard at the corner of Lakeview Boulevard. East of Woodland Avenue, in 1929, Sidney Cunningham opened a general store. In 1934, Hazel Taylor started a grocery store and the following year, William Kenny took it over and called the store “Passchendale”, recalling a famous World War I battle.

Elzéar Godin opened his grocery and butcher store in 1948 on the northwest corner of Fieldfare Avenue and Beaconsfield Boulevard. In 1965, Godin dismayed when the Dominion Store came next door to him. The following year, he sold his store. A few restaurants followed in this building: Les Trois Soeurs from 1996 to 2009, then Le Bocage.
In 1948 Mel Carter and Bill Boxell built themselves the Hub, a hardware and paint store. Originally at 449 Beaconsfield Boulevard, it was later moved at the corner of Saint-Louis Avenue replacing the Perrette food store.

Starting in 1954, Roy Pelletier operated the Roy’s Rexall Drugs (today: Galerie d’art Chase). In 1961, Pelletier and business associates built the commercial building east of the drug store where the CIBC bank opened up its Beaconsfield Branch in July that same year. In 1982, developer Cliff Thacker extended the building into a mini-shopping centre.

At one time, there were three service stations in the Beaurepaire Village. Other businesses were added through the years.
