* Neechi Niche carries Mother Earth Tobacco, organic tobacco for ceremonial purposes. Neechi has a long-standing policy of providing ceremonial tobacco while, for health reasons, not selling cigarettes. In 1990 our corner store on Dufferin Avenue became the first grocery in Winnipeg to not sell cigarettes, far ahead of the pharmacies! This is because we have always understood the connection between health and community economic development.

When you visit Neechi Commons you will see a lovely wall painting that symbolizes the spirit of our Three Sisters Fruit & Vegetables Courtyard. “Three Sisters” refers to the classic indigenous vegetables, corn, beans and squash, that grew only in the Americas before European contact. The painting was done as a gift to the Commons by renowned artist, Jackie Traverse.
- Inside the Commons you will also see what was originally a sidewalk art piece commissioned by Take Pride Winnipeg and located on Portage Avenue. It includes a sketch of Elijah Harper. The art piece was donated to Neechi by the artist, Tom Andrich, a few weeks before Elijah’s passing. Elijah was one of the ribbon cutters at the Grand Opening of our corner store on Dufferin Ave. in January 1990.
- We welcome suggestions that can make the Commons increasingly attractive to a wide range of customers. If you have comments to offer please e-mail them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
