OUAT – Steveston/Storybrooke Store List *Updated 9/26/14

Big Thanks to Ken for notating (and updating) these maps. I really appreciate it so much. It is amazing!

Ashley’s fiance works in a cannery. Could we possibly see this national historic cannery site (The Gulf of Cannery Museum) more closely in the future which is just west of Moncton St. & 3rd Ave? We have seen it way in the background in some of street scenes.

Here is the wikipedia detail: Link here

Here is a list of the Real Life Steveston businesses that transform into Storybrooke businesses. We support Steveston as the home to our favorite show, “Once Upon a Time”. Note: I have provided links to the photos on other sites here.

Pieces (http://insteveston.com/pieces) store becomes Purbeck Shoe Store (http://insteveston.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/inSteveston_OncePurbeckShoeStore-610×457.jpg)

Fleming & Associates (http://insteveston.com/fleming) becomes Archibald Hopper’s Office (http://insteveston.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/inSteveston_DrArchibaldHopper-610×187.jpg)

Cannery Cafe (http://insteveston.com/cannerycafe) becomes Granny’s Diner (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5979877462/in/photostream/). Note: This is where Ruby works. Just sayin’

Next to Granny’s Diner is where the now famous “David and Mary” kiss took place:

The former site of Artisans Galleria becomes Worthington’s Haberdashery (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5976502594/in/set-72157627157567647/)

Nikka Fishing and Marine (http://insteveston.com/nikka) becomes a mysterious boarded up free public library (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5975941871/in/set-72157627157567647/).

Pacific Net and Twine (http://insteveston.com/pacificnettwine) becomes Atlantic Net and Twine (http://insteveston.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/inSteveston_OnceAtlanticTwineNet-225×300.jpg)

Steveston Marine and Hardware (http://insteveston.com/stevestonmarine) becomes Storybrooke Hardware and Paint (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5976489956/in/set-72157627157567647)

Nikaido (http://insteveston.com/nikaido) becomes Standard Clocks (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5975928725/in/set-72157627157567647/)

Comment from Ken: “You mentioned you might have seen Cogsworth and the baker … could Cogsworth be the owner of the Standard Clocks shop and the baker be the owner of the Storybrooke Country Bread?”

Romania Country Bread (http://insteveston.com/romaniabread) becomes Storybrooke Country Bread (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5979880146/)

Serenity Lifestyle Boutique (http://insteveston.com/serenitylifestyle) becomes Modern Fashions (http://www.flickr.com/photos/insteveston/5979318603/in/photostream/)

Google Maps View link: Here

Post Office (http://www.steveston.bc.ca/online/museum.html) stays a Post Office (http://www.flickr.com/photos/claytonperry/6054882302/)

La Tandoor (http://insteveston.com/latandoor) stays La Tandoor

Dave’s Fish and Chips (http://insteveston.com/daves) stays Dave’s Fish and Chips

George’s Taverna (http://insteveston.com/georges) stays George’s Taverna

Comment from Ken: “We noticed that the La Tandoor next door to the Marine Garage appears to going through some rennovations inside and the windows are papered over. I don’t know if it’s because of real business changes or another set change (like Worthington Haberdashery morphing into Storybrooke Pet Shelter recently, and now (8/1/14) it an ice cream shop “Any Given Sundae”). I’ll keep an eye on it on future walks.”

Marine Garage (little neon sign in the window says Sepetto’s Garage if I remember correctly) is Marine Garage. Ken’s note: Sepetto’s Garage neon sign should be Seppo’s Automotive. Does the garage belong to Geppetto? We can’t remember if he owns the garage in the show. If so then Seppo’s must be his Storybrooke last name (I remember him being called Marco … so maybe Marco Seppo).

Storybrooke Coffee is Steveston Coffee

Storybrooke Dental is Moncton Dental

Note: Both of these businesses (listed above) are across the street from Mr. Gold Pawn Shop and next to Storybrooke Free Public Library.

The little park with the white picket fence as seen in your link to the Storybrooke Post Office picture was Mary Margarete’s front yard in episode 6 where she is talking to David after his homecoming party. *Very cool! Thanks Ken for this tidbit!

Harmony Dental Studio (this location shows up as Redden Nets in Google street view … has since become the dental office) became the Hat Store.

Mr. Gold’s Pawn Shop is at 3480 Moncton St store on Google Street view (formerly an art gallery store but had been empty prior to becoming Mr. Gold’s Pawn Shop)

Google Maps View link: Here

Others not seen (at least by me) or may show up in future episodes:

Storybrooke Courthouse is Steveston Courthouse.

Worthington Haberdashery changed to Storybrooke Animal Shelter. They were filming this past Thursday and I noticed the name change. Ken’s note: Storybrooke Animal Shelter should be Storybrooke Pet Shelter. My wife thinks she remembers hearing David was going to volunteer at an Animal Shelter (you guys probably can confirm.. I don’t remember) .. maybe this is the place.

Added 1/19 Sara’s Ice Cream spotted in “True North” in-between Storybrooke Hardware and Paint and Mr. Gold’s Pawn Shop. At this point, I don’t know what the Steveston business name is yet.

Maybe spoilery to some:

The Rabbit Hole is the back entrance to red brick Pieces Gift (Purbeck Shoes) building.

Budget Appliances becomes Bravura Appliance but I have not personally seen it in any episodes. The store is east across 1st Ave. from Storybrooke Post Office and north across Moncton St. from George’s Taverna. Bravura sign had a image of a weightlifter raising a dumbbell (I think I took a picture of it … but can’t find it now) so I was thinking more of Disney’s Hercules.

I saw it late Nov 2011 and I thought what an unusual name for an appliance store.

Big thanks to Ken and his incredible info and “on location” help with this list. I am so grateful to him (as I know the OUAT fans around the world are, too). Thanks again Ken. 🙂

Note: I am quite certain I may have made mistakes here and there, please let me know and I will resolve them. Thanks.

  1. Manny

    Wow! Great idea! It also reveals the writer’s “intent” to have a boarded up Public Free Library…. otherwise it would just be “Storybrooke Fishing and Marine” as they did with all other story irrelevant buildings or businesses. It means we’ll be seeing a lot more of that boarded up library!

  2. Manny

    Major props’ to Ken !! Very Cool!!
    And yes!, David tells MM that he’s found a job at the Animal shelter during their brief encounter at the public bulletin board.

  3. SaraBoyd

    Seppo’s Automotive is the name of the auto shop in real life (Seppo is the owners first name). Marine Garage is just the historical name of the building. Nothing to do with the show.

  4. Christine Kilpatrick

    Fantastic work. As soon as the weather clears I’ll spend some time and do a proper video show & tell of Moncton Street in downtown Steveston for the fans. I’ll include all the shops on the list they use for Storybrooke & Once Upon A Time.

  5. Ken

    That would be great Christine. It would give those fans interested, a clearer perspective on how the town of Storybrooke / Steveston is laid out.

    David ,,,,, yes La Tandoor (Indian) Restaurant is next to the Marine Garage

    To answer above 1/19 addition … Sara’s Ice Cream is a real ice cream shop called Sara’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream .. a favorite spot in the summer.
    Maps in links above have been updated for additions and a correction.

  6. Manny

    Hey All!
    Not to get too far off the subject,but……. Has anyone managed to get a good look or a decent Screen Cap of the fictional “Map of Storybrooke” that hangs on the wall behind the Sherff’s desk??

  7. Manny


    Mr. Ken………… “Your mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to sneak into the Sheriff’s Office and snap a shot of that bad boy,… as always you have ‘carte blanche’ as to method and personal. But, of course, should you or any member of your I.M. force be caught or killed…….. the secretary of this PodCast will disavow any knowledge of your actions. As usual, this message will self destruct in ten seconds.

    Good Luck, Mr Ken,…….. and Godspeed……. s*s*s*s*s*s*s*S*S*S*S*S******

    1. Ken

      LOL Manny!!! I may have to recruit Inspectors Gadget and Clouseau …. I’ve seen the Sheriff’s car parked at the Marine Garage but alas the Sheriff’s office doesn’t seem to exist in the nieghborhood … maybe inside the Burnaby BC studio I’m thinking .., beyond my jurisdiction.

    I hate to sound so nerdy, but I am looking into building a model Rail Road with storybrooke in it, yet the problem I have is putting it all together. The main street, easy but where is the mayors house in comparison or the docks etc. ?? Any ideas would be great. Thank you.
