Construction on the new Co-op Home Centre started on May 4, 2020 and was celebrated earlier with a social-distanced event, attended by a few local dignitaries and members of the Prairie Sky Co-op Board and Management Team.
The ground-breaking event took place at the construction site of the new facility, in the RM of Weyburn next to Crossroads C-Store/Cardlock location on the corner of Highways 39 and 13.
Notable members of the public in attendance were Dustin Duncan, MLA of Weyburn-Big Muddy; Reeve Carmen Sterling, RM of Weyburn No 67; Marcel Roy, Mayor of Weyburn; Brett Ferguson, Board President of Prairie Sky Co-op; and Kevin Arthur, GM of Prairie Sky Co-op.
The new Home Centre project is being built by Quorex Construction Services Ltd. and is expected to be complete in the spring of 2021.
Once opened, the facility will replace the existing Home Centre, located at 206 Hill Avenue.
