It has not been easy, or even possible, to name every business establishment from the days of the first white settlement to the present time. We have, however, attempted to acquaint you with as many as information allowed.

While Portagers are aware of the establishments located here now, the following listing may be helpful, many years hence, to someone who, once again, attempts to bring the history of Portage la Prairie up to date.

Due to the time element, the writer is unable to do thorough research on this subject, and offers sincere apologies to anyone whose place of business is not included here.
