ST. ANTHONY, NL. - The St. Anthony Grenfell Co-Op is closing its doors after 105 years of servicing the region.
At its annual general meeting at the St. Anthony Lion's Club on Jan 23, the Grenfell Co-Op membership passed a motion to begin the process of closing down their store.
"It is with great regret that, after 105 years in business, I am coming to the members of Grenfell Memorial Co-Op to ask for a resolution to close our member store," said President of the board of directors John Budgell in a speech during the meeting. "We can no longer generate enough revenue from sales to procure products or pay employees."
A closing date has not yet been set.
The Northern Pen will have more information on this story tomorrow.
