This one-storey brick building on Rosser Avenue in Brandon was constructed in 1929, at a cost of about $18,000, as a grocery for Safeway Stores Limited. The building has been extensively renovated from the original, and was occupied by a Habitat for Humanity Restore at the time of a 2022 site visit.
