About Sweláps Market Dedicated to Freshness, Culture, and Quality


Our Vision

Tḱemlúps te Secwépemc (TteS) has for some time envisioned owning a grocery store that would offer better access to groceries for members. The development of a Grocery Store on-reserve is a goal of the Comprehensive Community Plan and direction received by membership.

TteS has for many years grown its participation in the regional economy. Developing the commercial portion of the Chief Louis Centre is a natural extension of that participation. The grocery store will be an integral piece for all future developments.

TteS is not different from other First Nations who are driven to explore sustainable opportunities for employment creation, facilitating food security, and maximizing the positive effects of local development.

About Our Name

The Meaning of Sweláps

Sweláps, also known as big horn sheep, freely wander across the breathtaking landscapes of the Tḱemlúpsu’l’ucw. Our store logo pays tribute to these majestic creatures with a beautifully crafted representation of a sheep's horn nestled amidst the iconic Mount Paul, Mount Peter, and the North and South Thompson Rivers. At Sweláps Market, we embody a strong dedication to freshness, culture, and quality, which is evident in every aspect of our store's ambiance and atmosphere.
