Taber, Alberta, 2014-5-2 — /EPR Retail News/ — It takes a dedicated team to transform a store. When you have 14 stores to transform, it’s nothing short of amazing.
“Our team just did a phenomenal job. We put a lot of hours into the planning and the execution of that plan was just unbelievable,” said Medicine Hat Co-op General Manager Ted Rodych. “It was a proud moment to see the team and everything come together.”
Medicine Hat Co-op opened up a new Co-op food store in Taber, Alta., Thursday at 12 p.m. Although the transformation occurred in only 36 hours, Rodych said it feels like the store’s been open for six months. He attributes that to the work by all Medicine Hat Co-op employees, FCL support and vendors.
“The thing that really surprised me was the ability of every department to just work closely and pull together,” he said.
Rodych added it was an awesome feeling to open a new branch and provide a new experience for local residents.
“They’re looking forward to what we can offer them. The ability to support local vendors is one comment I heard numerous times.”
