The Prairie Sky Co-op’s board of directors has approved the construction of a new 21,000-square-foot Home Centre. Quorex Construction Services Ltd. from Regina has been selected as the General Contractor for the project.
The new facility will be located in the RM of Weyburn, next to the current Crossroads C-Store and cardlock location on the corner of Highways 39 and 13. Construction will begin in April of this year, and is expected to be completed by the spring of 2021.
“Prairie Sky Co-op has served Weyburn and the surrounding area for 90 years and we remain committed to the community,” said Kevin Arthur, general manager of Prairie Sky Co-op. “Our new Home Centre will allow us to deliver unparalleled service and value for years to come. The Co-op has always been a strong community builder and going forward with this project only strengthens our commitment to invest in the local economy.”
The new Home Centre will be larger in every way and will offer a full selection of home and building materials to meet the needs of the Co-op’s members and customers, from the small DIY projects to the large construction of a new home and everything else in between. Once open for business, the facility will replace the existing Home Centre, currently located at 206 Hill Avenue.
