Historic Sites of Manitoba: Safeway Store No. 501 (110 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg)

This one-storey brick building on Sherbrook Street in Winnipeg, measuring 32 feet by 80 feet, was designed by the architectural firm of Northwood and Chivers. It was constructed in 1929 as a grocery store for Safeway Stores Limited.

The building was occupied by a bakery at the time of a 2021 site visit. Its exterior is relatively unmodified from its original appearance.
