Manager of the North of 53 Consumers Co-op Tom Therien says their Board has approved the construction of a new store. He says they are looking forward to being able to bring in new improved product lines, better service and an overall better shopping experience for their customers. He says this is approximately a 50 percent addition to what they currently have to offer in their food store. He says this is a big commitment for North of 53 Co-op but they believe in the community, they believe in their customers and want to provide the best service.
The new store will be located on the present armories site on highway 10-A beside Twin Motors. Therien says the tenders are out for the demolition of the buildings on the site and they are expected to come down next month. Shortly after that tenders will go out for blasting. He says the goal is to have the new store in late 2017 or early 2018 adding it’s an investment of about 17 million dollars.
