The Slocan Valley Co-op is the proud recipient of the Bronze Award by Kootenay Business for the 2017 Best of Business in the West Kootenays for Grocery Stores.
The Slocan Valley Co-op has enjoyed another successful year. On top of our highest recorded total sales ever, at nearly $13.5 million, we also received honors, recognized as the Bronze recipient for Grocery Stores in the West Kootenays!
General Manager, Chris Sapriken, expressed his appreciation for the great effort of the staff at the Slocan Park store. "Delivering after last year's Platinum Award for Best Convenience Store was no less a challenge than the effort it took to win it in the first place. When it comes to our increased sales in food, we've noticed the larger traffic count throughout the entire year, and we have a stellar team that kept the trend going. The job they're doing, led by Store Supervisor, Carl DeVouge, has us being optimistic for another fantastic year. The great recognition is deservedly theirs! The continued support from our members and customers is evidence of our success. Still, there's no room for complacency. The Board of Directors have approved additional investment in our facilities with the pending fuel pump replacement. The new equipment will help to add further convenience and more peace of mind for our customers."
A big 'Thank You!' to everyone who voted for us.
