To our Valued Customers

With COVID-19 being declared a global pandemic, that is a global challenge and has a real impact on all Western Canadian communities Co-op serves. Effective Thursday November 12th, Southern Health Region, Prairie Mountain Health Region and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority have been moved to Critical Code Red. This means that mask wearing is mandatory in all indoor public places, including all Homestead Co-op locations. This includes our Carman, La Salle, Portage la Prairie, Austin, MacGregor, Treherne and Oakville locations.

Effective Saturday November 21st, any items deemed non-essential will be labelled and unavailable for purchase in-store. Curbside and delivery options are available at our Food Stores and Home Centres.

Homestead Consumers Co-op has and continues to take steps across all our facilities to help our communities stay safe and healthy. We want to be diligent by doing our part to prevent greater impacts.

Our stores are cleaned and sanitized daily as part of our normal business, but all stores have increased the frequency of cleaning. We are also ensuring that available preventive resources are made available to both customers and Team Members.
Homestead Co-op is currently using commercial electrostatic sprayers that allow us to sanitize our retail spaces safely and effectively, with less chemical usage, in combination with other cleaning protocols.

Given the guidance that we have received from the Public Health Agency of Canada and Manitoba Public Health, as well as our own preparedness efforts, we are taking preventative steps to ensure that your local Co-op stores are safe.

You can view our current store location and hours here.
