Co-op gets a new look


Heritage Co-op’s Brandon Food Store Thanks Customers, Reveals a Fresh New Look This Week

Major renovations at the Heritage Co-op Food Store in Brandon (1035 Richmond Avenue) are officially complete this week, after 8 months of work. With the renovation complete, Heritage Co-op is holding a Grand Re-Opening of the store to unveil its new look and in-store features. Another reason for the event – thanking Co-op’s customers for their positivity and patience throughout the renovation process.

“We know that a renovation of this magnitude does not come without its interruptions and inconveniences,” said Lorne Zacharias, General Manager of Heritage Co-op. “And what we saw throughout the entire renovation was excited, positive, and patient customers.”

“Our customers knew that any inconveniences were temporary, and above anything, they were just excited to see the outcome” added Dan Lange, Store Manager at the Brandon Food Store.

Customers will get their chance to see the results of this renovation on Friday, August 17 when the store hosts its Grand Re-Opening event. The event will include in-store demos, displays, and highlights of what customers can expect from the ‘new’ store. The renovation added several new features and offerings, including dry-aged beef available from the meat department, an expanded pharmacy area, and an updated an expanded deli department – which will add to its menu a sushi bar and popcorn kitchen.

A ribbon cutting and welcoming remarks from Co-op and community representatives at 11 am will be followed by a day of family fun and activities, including bouncy castles, face painting, live music, and a free BBQ all afternoon.

The event will feature a major prize draw for a 60-second shopping spree at the store, and throughout the two weeks following the event, customers will be entered into more daily prize draws, including another shopping spree, a barbeque, Winnipeg Jets tickets, and a popcorn machine.

“We’re excited to have a celebration to unveil what we know is going to be a fantastic store for this community for years to come,” said Zacharias. “We’re a truly local grocery option for the people of Brandon and area and we look forward to serving this community with service and style.”
