HistoryEdit

The company, incorporated as Domo Gasoline Corporation Ltd., was founded in Winnipeg by Douglas Everett in 1958.[6] It originally began as one of two gas stations that operated as a division of the Everett family's Dominion Motors car dealership, from which the name Domo came from.[3][6][7]

The first Domo stores were built on Safeway parking lots in the 1970s.[3] In the 1980s, Domo expanded to Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, and Vancouver.[3]

During the 1990s, Domo's president and CEO was Everett's son-in-law Stuart Murray, who later became leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba.[6]
