Historic Sites of Manitoba: Safeway Store (240 Manitoba Avenue, Selkirk)

This one-storey brick building on Manitoba Avenue in Selkirk was constructed in 1929 as a grocery store for Safeway Stores Limited. The building, with a relatively unmodified exterior from its original appearance, was a sporting goods store at the time of a 2020 site visit.
