We are a 3rd generation (working on the 4th) family owned and operated business founded in 1974 by Lawrence and Margaret Giesbrecht. Starting out with hauling Watermelons through LG Trucking (now LG Transport), moving into a full grocery store with much more than watermelons. Since day one, we value integrity, service, and relationships. Our business model reflects this in the way we serve our community. Relationship is how we got started and we’re not stopping now. We build trust with our community by offering a top notch produce selection that is hand graded because “good enough” is not in our vocabulary.
Lawrence, Al, Scott and Andy take immense pride in what they’ve built from humble beginnings. From coffee shop agreements to a full blown grocery store, we have stayed true to creating solid relationships throughout using integrity and hard work.
Our mission is to ensure everyone who walks through our doors, works for us, and supplies us feels at home.
Our passion started with watermelons!
Over 40 years ago, Giesbrecht Watermelons was a large steel shed filled with watermelons. We shipped right from the McAllen, Texas Warehouse: Home of the Best Watermelons South of Dallas.
Fast forward to today, we serve the whole Southern Manitoba region with this rich, red fruit. We now provide and distribute a full line of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced meat, pizzas, frozen grocery items, and specialty items to meet our customers’ needs. Offering high-quality products and excellent customer service, we supply a broad range of specialty items to our community with the freshest and most delicious Texas Watermelons and local Southern Manitoba grown fruits and vegetables.
