A merger between the Drumheller Co-op and Westview Co-op from Olds officially happens this Sunday, February 4. brentwalker 1Brent Walker
 
"It's a change, but it's a positive change and we're all pretty excited moving forward," remarked Brent Walker, General Manager of Drumheller Co-op. "It'll make us strong as an organization: the big thing, I guess, for the members is they'll be able to use their number in a lot more locations, so that's going to be a positive."
 
The merger was approved by the membership of both Co-ops last October and Walker assured us it will be as painless as possible.
 
"Really, from a member or guest point of view, they probably won's see any difference, other than on our till tape it will say Westview Co-op or something."
 
"They will need to add, basically 100,000 to their current Co-op numbners," he cautioned. "If your Co-op number currently is 37923 you will need to add 100,000, which would make it 137923; if you were (Co-op number) 3, it would be 100003."
 
The official name of the amalgamated company is Westview Co-operative Association Ltd., but it will be referred to as Westview Co-op at Drumheller.
