The Toronto statue sat near the store's front doors, where customers used to rub Timothy's left shoe for good luck. Over the years, the left shoe became a bit tarnished while the right shoe remained a shiny bronze. When the store was demolished to make room for the Eaton's Centre, Timothy Eaton's statue was moved to the ROM where it remains today. The Winnipeg statue is now on display in the MTS Centre.
