Coop to announce building plans later this month

  • Jul. 28, 2006 12:00 p.m.

The Delmas Co-op board will announce later this month whether or not it’s going ahead with plans to build a new grocery store building in Masset.
The board has called a meeting for Aug. 24 in Masset, at which point it will tell members its decision.
General manager Richard Clarmont said members won’t be voting whether to go ahead, because they already effectively gave the board the green light to construct a new building in a January 2000 vote. That vote was 78-percent in favour of the plan.
The board put the new store on hold a few years ago when bids came in much higher than expected.
Mr. Clarmont said the board hasn’t yet made its decision, because bids aren’t due until Aug. 10. At that point, board members will look at them and decide whether they have enough money to go ahead. The Co-op has been saving for several years towards the new building, and Mr. Clarmont said it is in good financial shape for the undertaking.
