Andy’s celebrates 50 years of business!
In 1966 Andrew B. Manitowabi pursued the idea of opening a gas station, laundromat and convenience store for Wikwemikong. With the help of his family he started his business known as Andy’s. The store was located at the homestead by Wikwemikong Holy Cross Mission Church, with one gas pump, oil deliveries, a couple washers and dryers, and a few convenience store items.
In 1980 Andy’s was relocated to where it is today, and it continued to grow with the community. A larger laundromat was built, along with a larger grocery store. F. Manitowabi Heavy Equipment Contracting was established by Farrell Manitowabi in 1985. In 1990 Andy’s expanded to a second building, introducing Manitowabi Clothing and Gifts, followed by the hardware store addition. In 2001 the Manitowabi Group decided to partner with RBC to offer basic banking services. In 2006 new partnerships were built with franchises to provide services to the community.
Today Andy’s consists of several departments:
- Grocery Store – Andy’s Independent Food Town
- Hardware Store – Ace Hardware
- General Merchandise - Manitowabi Clothing and Gifts
- Electronics - The Source Agency
- Hot Meals – Andy's Coffee Shop & Bakery
- Fuel Station – Andy’s Shell and Garage
- Fresh Meats – Andy’s Meat Dept.
- Bank – Agency of RBC
Andy’s is proud to announce they are celebrating their 50th Anniversary in June 2016. With new partnerships and exciting ventures, Andy’s will continue to serve Wikwemikong, and it would not be possible to operate without the support from our homeland and surrounding communities.
Chi Miigwetch Wikwemikong! We look forward to serving you.
