An organization called the Edmonton Consumer's Co-operative Ltd. started around 1935, but it is not known whether it became operational. The Edmonton District Farmers' Co-operative Ltd. was founded in 1938. It expanded rapidly and within a few years was dealing in farm supplies, feeds, groceries, general household goods, insurance services, and petroleum products (through a network of agencies in Edmonton and surrounding rural points). It was affiliated with U.F.A. Central Co-op and later with UFA Co-op for purposes of marketing Maple Leaf Petroleum products. It was also affiliated with Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association. Sometime between 1947 and 1951 it was renamed Edmonton Co-operative Association. J.R. Love was its manager.
