Hello We just purchased two suitcases/backpacks from the camping department. We dealt with Mary Ann. She was amazing. The type of bag we wanted wasn't in stock and we had a timeline to get them before our trip. Mary Ann worked with the supplier and had the suitcases shipped in the next shipment. She contacted us as soon as they came in. She went the extra mile to ensure that we got what we wanted before our trip. Thank you to Mary Ann and Capital Iron - the best store in town.

Rich in History and Charm

Capital Iron is so named because it started as a scrap business. The company was founded in 1934 by Morris L. Greene. He believed that there was potential for a scrap business in Victoria. He had a considerable knowledge of ships, which combined with the company’s waterfront location, enabled him to build up his business by dismantling ships for scrap. Between 1934 and 1971 the company dismantled nearly 100 ships of various sizes.
