Some people in the Drumheller area are going to have to go some place different for their groceries.
The Drumheller Co-op's board of directors has voted to shut down the food store.
A news release says grocery sales at the store in the Greentree Mall have declined steadily over the last decade and it was decided to close the grocery operation to ensure that the remainder of Drumheller Co-op's operations survive.
The news release does not say when the store closure will happen, but it says members will still be able to use their Co-op number at the other Drumheller Co-op locations and their equity accounts will not be affected by the closure.
The Home and Agro Centre, Co-op Gas Bar and Cardlock locations will remain open as usual.
We'll have more details as they become available.
