Coop’s building plans moving ahead

  • Jan. 6, 2006 10:00 a.m.

The Delmas Co-op is moving slowly but steadily on its project to build a new store in Masset, says general manager Richard Clarmont, Alex Rinfret writes.
The building is still in the drawing stage, Mr. Clarmont said, because changes have been made to the original plan.
“We took our time to make sure we get the best facility possible,” he said. “Now we’re waiting for the drawings to be finalized.”
Next step is to put the project out to tender. Once the board receives bids and can firm up the actual cost of the new building, it plans to hold a special meeting to share this information with co-op members, Mr. Clarmont said. Then, the board will make a decision.
Meanwhile, the co-op will hold its annual general meeting on Jan. 29, at which point members can hear a presentation from the building committee about how the project is going.
Mr. Clarmont said the 2005 annual report has just been printed and is now available at the Masset and Gwaii branches. The report contains good news, he said – the year ended Sept. 30, 2005 was a record-breaker in terms of sales, and savings have significantly improved over last year.
