Prairie Sky Co-op to close Coteau Ave. gas bar

Prairie Sky Co-op in Weyburn announced on Thursday they will be closing the Coteau Avenue gas bar, which is located next to the food store, effective Friday, Sept. 20.

The gas bar requires major repairs to continue to operate safely and meet the Co-op members’ expectations into the future. The cost of these repairs, along with the sales volume of this site, led to the decision to close this location. Every effort will be made to retain the gas bar employees and move them to other Co-op locations wherever possible.

Customers are encouraged to use the other C-Store locations in Weyburn, with the Suds City location at 1794 First Avenue, and the Main Track location at the junction of Highways 13 and 39.

The Co-op also has pump locations in Beaubier, Lang and Milestone that can use a customer’s Prairie Sky Co-op membership number to earn equity and cash back. For fuel purchases made in 2018, members received a five-per-cent allocation.

“Prairie Sky Co-op remains committed to investing in the community and has a long-term plan to invest in our facilities and equipment to best serve our membership,” said Kevin Arthur, General Manager of Prairie Sky Co-op. “We’ll be sharing more details of these investments in the near future.”
