By living our values of service, integrity, and unity, I am proud of the entire team for working together and supporting each other throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This level of support enabled our business to respond quickly to changing circumstances. Kudos go to those team members who were willing to move from our gas bars and home centres to support our food store staff. At three different times throughout the year our people were surveyed to determine how they felt about their Co-op and each time the trust and satisfaction levels were high.
I understand that none of the many successes we achieve as an organization are possible without the292 dedicated, hardworking employees and managers; and the 12,812 member owners of Prairie North Co-op. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The work done in 2019 strengthened the foundation on which we have been able to face 2020’s challenges. I am proud to say that we have continued to build on that foundation and are well positioned for growth in 2021-2022. We are proud. We are local. We are Coop. We are locally invested, community minded and offer a lifetime of benefits.
