The Pickering Company opened as Pickering and Fearnley in 1876 under the management of Thomas Pickering. The store was located at 962 Penn Avenue and 10th Street. Then management passed to his widow, Mary Pickering. The name was changed to Pickering and Sons around 1886, and again to Pickering MH Company by 1906. The company was in business until 1930.
