"The new Strathmore Co-op food centre features a fresh bakery case, cheese island and an expanded selection of fresh meat and seafood," says Ken Keelor, CEO. "We look forward to providing our Strathmore members with the best in fresh, quality products, and caring service, while providing value for their dollar."
In celebration of the Grand Opening at the food centre, the first 300 members through the door each received a $10 gift card, and samples and demonstrations will continue throughout the day.
