Peninsula Co-op has been in business since 1977 and currently has more than 83,000 active member-owners. Peninsula Co-op was founded by a small group of Saanich Peninsula residents with a vision and a strong belief in the principles upon which all Co-ops are based. The founding members went door to door back in the mid 1970’s recruiting members and promoting the new Co-op. The Peninsula Co-op Food Centre opened its doors in May 1977 on Keating X Road in Saanichton.
Peninsula Co-op ventured into the petroleum business in the early 1980’s and began a partnership with Save-On Gas Ltd. in 1985. Peninsula Co-op currently has 16 gas locations located between Victoria, Duncan and in Comox and has a partnership with Save-On Gas locations in the Greater Victoria and Malahat to Duncan areas.
In April of 2016 Peninsula Co-op amalgamated with the Comox Valley Co-op. The amalgamation brought in over 5,000 new member-owners, a new gas centre and cardlock location.
Peninsula Co-op remains 100% locally owned and operated.
