“The continued success Prairie Sky Co-op has experienced over the years is completely due to the tremendous support of our members and customers, and for that we thank them,” said Kevin Arthur, General Manager of Prairie Sky Co-op.

“We’re a truly local business that proudly delivers goods and services to our customers and members, so being named on a province-wide list like this means a lot. Many things have changed over the years, but our values and principles haven’t. We believe in sharing our profits with our members, creating new opportunities and investing in our communities.”

In total, 26 Saskatchewan-based retail co-ops are included on the SaskBusiness list. They’re also joined by Saskatoon-based Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL), which placed second in the rankings.

Combined, FCL and these retail co-ops had sales of almost $13.7 billion in 2018.
