WINNIPEG — Red River Co-op is rebuilding a grocery store after a flood destroyed it nearly two years ago.

The company says it will build in St. Norbert at the site of the former Federated Cooperatives Ltd.-managed Marketplace store at 3477 Pembina Highway.

A watermain break in January 2018 forced the store’s closure and it eventually had to be demolished. Prior to that, the location housed a Foodland grocery store.

“Shortly after the flood at the Marketplace occurred, we heard overwhelming support from St. Norbert residents for another Co-op to be built in its place,” said Doug Wiebe, CEO of Red River Co-op.

“We are excited to be able to offer a brand new Red River Co-op grocery store — which will include a pharmacy in addition to an existing gas bar — to better serve the community.”

The addition is the eighth Red River Co-op food store in the province, with the fourth serving Winnipeg.

Construction is already underway on the 31,000 square foot building and is scheduled to be completed by late fall 2020.
