The History Behind Cloverleaf

D.H. Loney's Store - Circa 1910

D.H. Loney's Store - Circa 1910

Due to loss of work during the depression, Lawrence and Grace Loney set up shop in what used to be D.H. Loney's furniture store. Opening day of business for the riverfront enterprise was November 1st, 1932. The name, "Cloverleaf" came from the name of the road that led from Emo to Fort Frances - the Cloverleaf Trail.

Lawrence and Grace had 4 Children - Dave, Larry, Judy and Bill and in 1950 Dave entered the partnership. Bill later joined. Dave's eldest sons Mark and Dan became partners in the late 80's and 90's, and just recently Brendon (Mark's oldest) became part of the business. This addition makes four generations.

In 2001, Cloverleaf and the Fairway Store became one business, a merger of sorts as all the Fairway's staff continue to play important roles. The new Cloverleaf now stands where the Fairway Store once sat.

Many things have changed since 1932, but some things will never change - Cloverleaf Grocery will continue to be a community store. Our motto remains, "Our Customers are our friends. Our Friends are our community."
