This is adding onto their already massive bulk cleaning and skincare section where you can buy eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and all the other products that keep you lookin’ good. There are also eco-friendly household cleaners to keep your place lookin’ just as good!

Please remember to bring your own container, so we can be even more eco-friendly by eliminating waste.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the treats!

In the Made in Manitoba section, you will also find a freezer filled with POP CART popsicles, ice cream from Cornell Creme, and cookie dough from sweet C bakery! Perfect for summer days when the sun is hot.
