Historic Sites of Manitoba: Safeway Store (384 South Railway Street, Boissevain, Municipality of Boissevain-Morton)

This one-storey brick building on South Railway Street in Boissevain was constructed in 1930 as a grocery for Safeway Stores Limited. It closed in 1940 and has been occupied by a succession of other businesses through the years. The building’s exterior is relatively unmodified from its original appearance.
