The Lloydminster and District Co-Op says new renovations to their Agriculture Centre shows their commitment to a driving sector in the area.
Over the last year, the Co-Op has been has been working on a million dollar upgrade to the facility, including an updated show-floor for new stock,establishing modern offices and updated meeting spaces. In addition, the key focus of the new centre will be strictly agriculture products and tools.
The Co-Op’s CEO Don Stephenson was there to cut the ribbon Wednesday, and says that this update was part of a bigger plan to provide better service to Co-Op members.
“We built a first class chem facility a few years ago and in my mind a first class card-lock facility not long ago as well. This was kind of the thorn between the two roses. The difference here is that’s no longer the case. This turned out extremely well, and we’re really proud.”
Stephenson adds that the rebuild reaffirms the Lloydminster Co-Op’s to agriculture, which is a driving force in the Lloydminster economy.
“We’re trying to, or attempting to keep up with the times, and invest in a sector that has been part of our fabric for 104 years.”
Co-Op is a member owned business, and currently has 19,000 members in Lloydminster and the surrounding area.
