History

Co-operatives have a long history of serving members in Western Canada. In the early 20th century, people worked together to create retail co-operatives in many towns in the four western Canadian provinces (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia).

Neepawa Co-op was formed in 1929 to handle petroleum and other farm needs, with service expanded to include a lumberyard and grocery department in later years.  Gladstone Consumers Co-operative began in 1946.  In the 1960's, to cut delivery costs and encourage "bulk" buying, talks began between Neepawa and Gladstone regarding amalgamation of the two co-ops.  In March, 1969, at their annual meeting, the members of the Gladstone Consumers Co-op voted in favour of the Gladstone facility becoming a branch of the Neepawa Co-op, and the name was changed to "Neepawa-Gladstone Co-operative Limited".

Over the years, Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op has continued to expand existing buildings and build new facilities according to the needs of the membership, the newest being the new food store in Neepawa, which opened in March, 2014.

The Co-op has always been proud to support programs within the communities in its trading area.
