Pollock's Hardware Co-op

Why a Co-op?

The owners of Pollock Hardware planned to retire so they put the business up for sale. After quite a while on the market there was no serious interest in buying and operating this North End institution. A number of customers believed that a community ownership strategy might be a viable option to individual private ownership and the hardware co-op idea was born. 

The Co-op model has a long history of working hard for social and economic development in both rural and urban Manitoba. With the backing of the community through memberships, investment and volunteerism, Pollock’s Hardware Co-op hopes to:

  • Meet the community’s needs as a successful hardware business
  • Promote local ownership and control
  • Develop and provide community leadership
  • Build a stronger community

Pollock’s Hardware Co-op serves our community and beyond. Unlike some models where only members are able to shop in their facility, Pollock’s Hardware Co-op is open to all, so come on up to 1407 north Main Street and bring a friend. Hope to see you there!

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!
