William Campbell started Campbell’s Ships Supplies in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1877 and the Company is now operated by the fourth generation of the Campbell family. The landscape of St. John's was quite different in 1877. Campbell's operated from it's market located on Water Street and a 128-acre farm on the outskirts of the city. It was there that animals were raised and butchers then delivered to butcher shops, grocery stores, and vessels moored in St. John's Harbour.

The times have certainly changed since then, as the old farm would now lie in the middle of the city. The company's refrigeration consisting of 300 pound blocks of ice cut from Kent's Pond in winter, now has evolved into a modern facility with over two million pound capacity freezers and coolers, conveniently located close to the harbour in downtown St. John's.

Campbell's is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's longest established businesses. From the four-masted schooners that once fished the Grand Banks, to today's state of the art vessels.

Since 1877 we have built our reputation on providing quality products and personalized service that meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations.
