Historic Sites of Manitoba: Campbell’s General Store (Roseisle, RM of Dufferin)

The first general store to serve the Roseisle community was operated by E. J. Moore about one-quarter mile south of the first post office on NE17-6-7W. In 1903, after the Canadian Northern Railway was extended west through the area, the Moore store was relocated to a site near the rail line.

Subsequent owners of the store were E. J. and/or W. H. Moore (1903-1920), Guy Osbert Taylor (1920-1943), Chester Hamilton (1944-1945), A. B. Drever (1945-1948), and Robert J. Watson (1948-1951). From 1951 to 1982, J. C. “Charlie” Campbell and his wife Dorothy owned and operated the store, which was renamed Campbell’s General Store. Their son Garth took over in 1982 until it closed in 2005.

By August 2022, the vacant building had been demolished.
