Biographical history

The Blackie Co-operative Association Limited was incorporated in Blackie, Alberta 1915. Its leading proponent and first manager was O.W. Bowlus, a local farmer and surveyor. A store was built almost immediately, selling lumber, hardware, and petroleum products. It was destroyed by fire in 1926, but was rebuilt and expanded with the purchase of a neighboring hardware store. A larger new store was built in 1976, but because of the declining number of farms in the Blackie district, it was not sustainable, and ceased operations in 1979. The building was rented out but was not sold until 2002. The sale of the building enabled the Co-op to disband and distribute its assets to its members.
