The Squires family has operated businesses in Shippensburg since 1893, when A.C. Squires started a watch and jewelry shop in Earl Street. A.C.’s son, Frank, later became part of the business, and they ventured into the music industry.
In 1945, Frank opened an appliance business at 226 W. King St. in Shippensburg. He was eventually joined by his son, Jack, and grandson, John. Jack oversaw the opening of an appliance store
in Lincoln Way East in Chambersburg
in 1972. The company expanded to a new location across Lincoln Way East in 1993.
Squires continued to operate in both Shippensburg and Chambersburg until they consolidated to the new store in October of 2004.
