Regina, Canada, 2014-5-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Sherwood Co-op’s new south Albert Street location was one of the last stores of 14 purchased from Sobey’s Inc to make the transition when it opened May 23.
Like many of the other stores, a lot changed in the 36 hours the store was closed: painting, new checkouts, aisle markers and Co-op products. But there is also more in store in the coming weeks and months.
“We also appreciate that our customers deserve to shop in clean, modern facilities and as a result we will continue to develop and focus on our infrastructure,” General Manager Troy Verboom said in a message to members. “…we are very excited to be able to provide another Food Store in Regina. We are really looking forward to the current Safeway employees joining our Sherwood Co-op Team.”
Thank you to all Co-op members and shoppers for your patience during this period. Together, we are building a different shopping experience for you and the community. These are your stores; you’re at home here.
