Update as of February 1, 2021

We Need Your Help!

In accordance with Manitoba Public Health orders, anyone inside a public space must wear a mask. That means anyone inside Red River Co-op food stores, convenience stores and pharmacies is expected to be wearing a mask.

Please help us by wearing a mask inside of our locations. Our team members are educating customers and reminding people to wear a mask and we need you, our customers and members, to be compliant of this Public Health order.

Please be kind to our staff. They are on the front lines, doing all they can to providing essential services to the community.

If you are looking for a contactless shopping alternative: Pay at the pump is available at our gas bars, a free mobile app is available to purchase car washes, and Click and Collect is an online shopping option offered at select food stores.

Thank you for your co-operation.
