Marquis Dental has been serving Saskatoon and area for more than 35 years.
In 2004 we moved into a space in the heritage building that houses the Saskatoon Public School Division offices.
The Marquis Dental Group Space
When we relocated our office to the historic Eaton’s building (known to many as the Army & Navy building) in downtown Saskatoon, we aimed to create an environment that was clean, modern and inviting while respecting the space’s history and showcasing some of the character elements that remain.
The result is a dental practice that we hope you will find comfortable and welcoming, with a nod to Saskatoon’s rich history.
The Eaton’s (Army & Navy) Building
The Eaton’s Building, constructed in 1927, was originally intended to be eight stories, which would have made it the tallest building in Saskatoon at that time.
Eventually built to just three stories, the building had a grand and lavishly appointed interior that included ornate fixtures, an art gallery, a meat department with an 80-foot marble counter and a Mediterranean-style dining room. King George and the Queen Mother toured the building in 1939.
Eaton’s relocated to Midtown Plaza in 1970 and in 1971, when the Canada Winter Games were held in Saskatoon, the space was used to house athletes. In 1973 the Army & Navy department store opened their doors in the Eaton’s building, where they remained until 2000.
At its peak the Saskatoon Army & Navy employed 320 people and was a fixture of Saskatoon’s downtown core.
Following the Army & Navy’s closure in 2000, the Saskatoon Public School Board acquired the space and began a $9M renovation, bringing the building up to modern standards while showcasing much of its character and history.
The building also allowed for some commercial space on the main floor, and Marquis Dental, wishing to serve the dental needs of those living, working or visiting Saskatoon’s downtown core, began renovations on the 21st Street commercial space.
Even though it hasn’t been functional for many years, the 90+ year old escalator, first such contraption in the province of Saskatchewan, remains a fixture in the building.
Marquis Dental has been serving the Saskatoon community for more than 35 years and we think the heritage space is a great fit for our practice.
We hope you will visit us in this historic space for all your dental needs.
