Prairie Sky Co-op is taking the next step towards their goal of building a new Home Centre. Nejmark Architect Inc. has been contracted to design and tender the construction of a new 21,000 sq. ft. Home Centre.
Pending a successful tender process that results in a bid within the feasibility targets, construction of the new facility will begin in the spring of 2020, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The new centre will be located in the RM of Weyburn next to the current C-Store/Cardlock location at the intersection of Highways 39 and 13.
“Prairie Sky Co-op has served Weyburn and the surrounding area for 90 years and we remain committed to our communities,” said Kevin Arthur, General Manager of Prairie Sky Co-op.
“A 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 Co-op has put out a request to local subcontractors and suppliers to put their names in for the general contractor’s use, if they are a Prairie Sky Co-op customer or member.
“It is important to us to have as many local subcontractors and suppliers as possible part of this project,” states the call for contractors.
The new Home Centre will be larger in every way and will offer a full selection of home and building materials to meet all of the its members’ needs, from the small DIY projects to the construction of a new home and everything in-between. Once open, the facility will replace the existing Home Centre, located at 206 Hill Avenue.
