Our Store


Gerald Thiessen has been pharmacist/manager/owner since 2003, when Super Thrifty bought DuLac Pharmacy, a long-time community pharmacy. Noureen Qamar joined the pharmacy team in 2016.

Our Community


Ste. Rose du Lac, with a population of approximately 1000, serves a trade area of 5,000 people. The town acts as a regional centre for health and medical services, livestock and agriculture, tourism, commerce and shopping. Situated between Lake Manitoba and Lake Dauphin, the town’s great location offers excellent recreational summer and winter opportunities. A large stone replica of the famous grotto at Lourdes, France is a local attraction. Hoof n’ Holler Days, held every October over three days, is a family-centred festival that includes a parade, fireworks, duck races, a fall supper, a casino and other activities. Super Thrifty is a proud sponsor of the Hoof n’ Holler Days annual festival.
