There are two grain elevators in Glossop, Manitoba. They are now owned by Parrish & Heimbecker.

The larger steel elevator was a Pioneer elevator and now has a series of steel bins attached to it. It has a capacity of 22,000 tonnes and can handle 11,000 bushes per hour. The facility also stores up to 1,600 tonnes of fertilizer.

There is a wooden grain elevator near the concrete one. The wooden elevator was originally built in Elphinstone, Manitoba by Inter-Ocean Grain. It was sold to Pioneer Grain in 1972 and moved to this site. It is now owned by Parrish & Heimbecker.

These elevators were sold by James Richardson International (Pioneer) in 2007 as part of a consolidation started by the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool acquiring Agricore.

These elevators are served by Canadian Pacific via the CP Bredenbury subdivision.
