Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sures Building / Thompson-Codville Building (246 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

This building was originally constructed in 1882 as a warehouse for the wholesale grocery firm of Thompson, Codville Company (later The Codville Company), under J. J. Codville. In 1895, the building was divided into two sections with separate entrances, occupied by a stove retailer and a pork-packing firm. From 1910 to 1925, other occupants included a machine shop, dry goods wholesaler, and bathroom fixture supplier. In 1925, the building was purchased by businessman Nathan Sures as the base for Sures Brothers Limited, a manufacturer of headgear and sportswear. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
