Shop History

História da loja (ING) Store created in 1910 with the name of Drogaria Moderna, it was adapting to the changes of society, altering the offer of services and articles. It was a glassware and tableware store and, back in the sixties, it added toys to its offer.
Since its creation, it has remained in the same family, currently in the fifth generation. Over time, it was a place of defense of values and civic intervention, with several family members participating in the political, social and cultural life of Guimarães, in the exercise of public positions and in the direction of Guimarães associations. It has a tradition of commemorating the establishment of the Republic. In the estate of both the family and the store there are several official documents, letterhead from different periods, invoices and other documents that illustrate the history of the store. The oldest official document is dated 1913, from the Ministry of Defense. We also have several working tools and articles from different periods, some of which are on display in the store’s museum space.
