A Co-operating Society that has Drumheller under its wing has won an award in Excellence in Brand Development. Westview Co-op accepted the award earlier this month.

The four categories are Excellence in Brand Development, Excellence in Co-Operation among Co-Operatives, Excellence in Corporate Performance Mangement, excellence in Sustainability," explained General Manager for Westview Co-op Dennis Laing.
This award was presented at the Federated Co-operatives Limited Annual General Meeting in Saskatoon on March 4, 2019. Westview Co-op is one of 170 autonomous retail co-operatives that make up the Co-operative Retailing System.
"It really speaks to the culture that we have managed to build the co-op. I'm proud to be part of a team that makes a difference in our communities. We are changing lives, one shopping experience at a time," continued Laing. '
Westview Co-op currently has locations in and around the communities of Carstairs, Consort, Drumheller, Eagle Hill, Hanna, Linden, Olds and Sundre.
"Without the support with our Board of Directors, our leadership team, our team members, and most importantly our guests that support us each and every day, this would not have been possible," thanked Laing.
