What's Happening at the Co-op?
New Peninsula Co-op Locations Coming Soon!
Construction on the new McDonald Park Road in North Saanich (Sidney) is well underway and on schedule to open in mid-to-late November 2016. This location will offer: regular, premium, marked mid-grade, and diesel petroleum options at 4 pump islands, as well as propane for both auto and bottle fills. Our customers will appreciate the large 2600 sq ft convenience store as well as the touchless carwash and vacuum.
“What will happen to the current Co-op location on Bevan Ave?” At this point both locations will be open through the Fall and into early 2017. We do not own the Bevan Ave location, we lease it. The lease expires in June 2017 and the land is for sale. Our Peninsula Co-op roots are strong on the Saanich Peninsula and one of the primary reasons we purchased the new location at McDonald Pk Rd, is to continue to serve our member-owners and customers for the long term.
Construction of the new Glenshire location in Langford marks our fourth location on the Westshore. This new location will be an anchor on the newly constructed Westhills Parkway connector which links Goldstream to Sooke Road. The roadway is currently under construction and once completed construction of our Peninsula Co-op location will commence with a forecasted opening of late 2017.
This location will offer regular, premium, marked mid-grade, and diesel petroleum options at 6 pump islands, as well as propane for both auto and bottle fills. Like our new Sidney location, customers will appreciate the large 2600 sq ft convenience store, touchless car wash and vacuum.
