Welcome, McCreary!

We’d like to welcome LesLee, Gord, and the McCreary community to the TGP family!

Leaving Toronto, LesLee and Gord Muir moved out west 20 years ago to the beautiful Manitoba countryside. Their dream was to leave the corporate world and city life behind to raise their children in the country and become part of a small friendly and welcoming town in their home province.

In 2001, they purchased a small grocery store and four months later were approached by the main grocery store in town.

Both having a background in retail, LesLee and Gord openly accepted the challenge and became owners of Trickle Creek General Store. LesLee states, “we viewed it as making an investment in the community”. By recognizing the needs of their community, they’ve built a sustainable business.

Since taking over ownership 16 years ago, they’ve added a butcher’s shop and commercial kitchen, they’ve renovated the store twice and are continuously making improvements to stay relevant. McCreary and the surrounding communities rely on The Trickle Creek General Store to conveniently offer fresh, local, quality products at a reasonable price.

We are extremely thrilled that LesLee and Gord, after being supplied by MacDonald’s Consolidated for the past 15 years, have chosen to partner with The Grocery People. We value their years of experience in the industry and look forward to supporting LesLee and Gord, and by extension the McCreary community, for years to come.
