History 1913 to 1946 Andrew Agencies Limited was established in 1913 as a general insurance and travel agency by Robert Andrew. The company represented the Miniota Farmers Mutual Fire Insurance Company that was purchased by the Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company in 1923 and the Cunard Steamship Lines selling steamship tickets. The original office was located at 131 Nelson St. W., Virden, Manitoba in the rear of Yewdall’s Tailor Shop (the current Sears building). Eventually located to the second floor at 219 Nelson St. W. Ted Treliving operated a barbershop on the lower level. 1946 to 1961 Vern Andrew, upon return from overseas in October 1945, worked for his father, Robert Andrew. Following his father’s death in 1946, Vern purchased the business, which he operated until his death on April 30th, 1961. In 1946 Vern purchased the office building at 219 Nelson St. W. from George Gabel and moved the office to street level. Renovations to the Interior in 1958 changed the façade from two entries to one. The office door was never locked during business hours even at coffee break. Vern would return from coffee to find clients sitting in the office waiting for him. Out of office calls to premises were done after hours. During high school, Vern’s son, Bob, worked part time with his father typing policies and doing the mail. 1961 to 1996 In 1956 Bob Andrew began full time employment at the agency. Following his father’s (Vern) death, Bob purchased the business operating it for the next 35 years. Andrew Agencies was incorporated in 1964. In 1978 Bob built a new office at 297 7th Avenue S. Virden, Manitoba. His wife Marjorie became part of the increasing staff. By the early1990’s the office was fully automated for insurance, travel and investments. Bob and Marjorie retired in 1996 and 1998 respectively. 1993 to Present In 1993, the fourth generation of Andrews continued the operation of Andrew Agencies Limited when Bob s sons Todd (deceased), Scott and Blair purchased the business. Jacy Whyte partnered into the business in 1997, followed in 2000 by Brock Andrew (Bob’s son). In 2007 Clint Smith and Robert Eslinger became partners.
