Timothy Eaton (1834 – 1907) was a Canadian businessman who founded the Eaton's department store, one of the most important retail businesses in Canada's history, introduced in Season 5 of Murdoch Mysteries, portrayed by Brian Rhodes.

History

Timothy Eaton spawned a colossal retail empire that his offspring would expand coast to coast, reaching its high point during World War II, when the T. Eaton Co. Limited employed more than 70,000 people. Although Timothy Eaton did not invent the department store, nor was he the first retailer in the world to implement a money-back guarantee, the chain he founded popularized both concepts and revolutionized retailing in Canada.
