Pollock's Hardware Co-op

Hundred of volunteers will be needed on Saturday and Sunday, April 16 and 17, to build a sandbag dike on Scotia Street. There’s a chance the water could get high enough to overflow the permanent clay dike just completed last fall, so this effort will be vital to protect many homes. Come on out to help your neighbours!

Volunteers are asked to call 311 to indicate their availability and receive further instructions on how to help.

The City is asking volunteers to call 311 before proceeding to any private properties where sandbagging activities may be taking place. By calling 311 first, volunteers will help ensure they are properly prepared and sent to high priority locations.

Out of town residents wishing to assist with dike-building in Winnipeg can call 1-877-311-4974, toll free.

I will be more than happy to help out my neighbours on Scotia. If they’re members of Pollock’s.

Welcome To Pollock's Hardware Co-op

Pollock's Hardware Co-op is one of Winnipeg's oldest and coolest hardware stores! Established in 1922 we are one of the few independent hardware stores to make it through the boom of big box stores. While thriving in the North End we are committed to staying true to our community, our members and Winnipeg. To add to that we partnered with Build and MGR and with that are now proud owners Winnipeg's first Social Enterprise Centre. The S.E.C. is making a huge impact on Winnipeg as it is promoting and providing space for many of Winnipeg's social enterprises. Pollock's Hardware Co-op is all about community, tradition, and staying true to the word of small independent businesses. Big box stores have nothing on the little hardware store that could! We now have a 3rd location in South Osborne as well! You would be amazed at how much product we squeezed in to that place! Like a mini version of our North End store you would think it was there forever! A must see! A big giant thank you to all our members, share holders, our awesome board and devoted employees.... we wouldn't be here with out you!
