Co-op Supply

Cooperative Supply, Inc.
Pursuing greatness for our patrons....

Co-op Supply provides its customers
with quality products
and exceptional services.

The Farmers Union Oil and Supply Company was organized December 10, 1932.  Originally, the Co-op began as a Farmers Union organization and only members of that group could purchase supplies.

The first station was on Northwest Boulevard in Coeur d’ Alene – January 7, 1933.


In the early 1950’s the Farmers Union Co-op reorganized, changed the name to Cooperative Supply and associated with the Pacific Supply, Walla Walla, WA as its wholesale supplier.

Petroleum was a large volume of the business….

The Co-op trade area was primarily around Lake Coeur d’Alene, although they served patrons as far south as Princeton, Idaho with a store there.  Petroleum was a large volume of the business, but the company endeavored to provide the quality items that farmers, ranchers and area people needed.

During the time of operation, the Co-op has operated numerous stores.  Those stores were:  Princeton, Potlatch, St. Maries, Worley, Post Falls.  The first building on the site of the Post Falls Co-op Supply was built in the 1930’s.  A new fueling facility was built in 2009.  The Coeur d’Alene stores were: 115 NW Boulevard, 508 Northwest Boulevard, 604 Northwest Boulevard, 1923 Sherman, a Feed Mill at 3rd and Indiana and Dalton Gardens on Government Way.

About seven acres of land was purchased along Government Way in Dalton Gardens in about 1964.  At the time of purchase it was little more than a lot full of trees with a very small building with two gas pumps out front.  Now it is the Dalton Gardens Store, and is the largest of the Co-op’s facilities.  About one million dollars was spent in 1995 to bring the store up to its current status.

The Petroleum Department was added in 2002 when the Trent Location was purchased.  It since has had its fueling system upgraded and is a “stand alone” card lock facility.  The Petroleum Department expanded and now serves many bulk fuel farmers and commercial and heating oil customers in North Idaho and Spokane County.
