It started as a grocery store but soon took interest in the refillable beer and pop bottle industry. Later in 1970 D&C Comeau Grocery was passed down to Charles' oldest daughter, Hélène Comeau. She maintained the family business for twenty years before selling it to her oldest son, Michel Comeau in 1990. In 1993, Michel terminated the grocery store and furthured his business in the refillable beer and pop bottle industry. That same year D&C Comeau Grocery was changed to Comeau's Bottle Exchange which still operates today.
