In the middle of the 1920s, Edouard Lamoureux opened a food market at 550 Beaconsfield Boulevard, at the southwest corner of Lakeview Boulevard. In 1928, Edouard asked for a permit to operate a service and gas station adjacent to his food market and opened the first gas station in Beaurepaire. His business was destroyed by fire in 1942. The food market was rebuilt after the Second World War when his brother John came back from the war. The building was totally renovated in 1955 with rental offices upstairs and an apartment behind the store. In 1971, the store was rented to Yvon Trudel. In the mid 1970s, Trudel bought the entire property including the store known as Marché Yvon.

Edouard was a shareholder in Mansfield Realty Corp, company of his father David Lamoureux.

In 1929, Edouard became the third Secretary-Treasurer for the City of Beaconsfield. He was first operating from his mother's house, at 545 Beaconsfield Boulevard. Later on, the City rented a room in the Valois farm house until the opening of the first City Hall in 1931 at 450 Lakeshore Road. Living in the house next to the City Hall was the Poulson family; in 1941, Edouard married Arthur Poulson's daughter Amelie. 

Edouard was also Chief of Police and Fire Chief during the Great Depression years. In 1951, he also cumulated the position of City Public Works Superintendent. Starting on January 1st, 1952, from Secretary-Treasurer, he became the first Town Manager of Beaconsfield.
