The Pioneer Co-op serves the south west portion of the province. They are a member owned business which provides all services the agriculture community needs. Services include fertilizer, chemical, seed, agronomy services, bins, farm machinery and rentals, propane, fuel, feed, tires, hardware, lumber, houses, family fashions, an all inclusive market place - grocery, deli, produce, butcher store, liquor, and drugs stores located at more than 20 locations in South West Saskatchewan. The pioneer co-op donates to many non-profit organizations in the community as well has a member patronage pay-out once per year, so the community benefits.
If the Pioneer Co-op were to win, it would mean more money and resources donated to non-profit organizations, or a green space initiative in the community. We have talked about providing a mobile rest-relief space for use at community events such as out Frontier days, our summer outdoor market, kite festivals and such or emergency situation? This would be ideal for expectant mothers, mothers with children, seniors, and the weary!
