Elm Creek & Marquette Co-ops Amalgamation Vote a big YES!
It was a very resounding "yes." Elm Creek and Marquette Co-ops set out to amalgamate their respective operations to increase stability and provide members with more options. The idea rolled around for ten years, and steps were just made to move forward and do it. April 9th saw Elm Creek hold the vote, and 97 per cent were in favour. Marquette Co-op held its vote April 11th, with 95 per cent in favour. See More....

Elm Creek Coop History
"To provide the residents of Elm Creek and surrounding areas with goods and services for their consumption and use on a co-operative basis" (extracted from the Elm Creek Co-op's Board minutes)
This was the original purpose of the Co-op. Those services have been provided by Elm Creek Co-op since 1928, and are still provided today. The very day the Co-op was granted it's charter, the price of gasoline dropped by 6 cents per gallon in the Elm Creek District. This was to set an example for years to come, showing that Co-ops are a benefit to the community. The picture above is of Co-op in 1970
The Elm Creek Co-op has undergone many changes since 1928, both financially and physically. Members, Board Members, Management, and Staff have all benefited from this business over the years. Co-op has provided employment for families in the area & many have served on the Elm Creek Board, and learned the Co-operative way. The picture to the left shows Co-op in1985. Some early products are pictured to the right
Although a great many people have been involved in our Co-op since 1928, one name remembered by most is Archie Janzen - manager of the Co-op for many years. He also served on Provincial Credit Union Boards, as well as Co-op Federation Boards.
The Co-op has faced many challenges through the years, none more difficult than the economic downturn during the 1980s. It survived!!!!!!!! Today there are still challenges to face, but we have a stronger Co-op because of it's loyal membership. the picture to the right shows co-op in early 1989.

1892 to 1992 - A Century of Memories"
What you see today is after many years of extensive planning with FCL and Elm Creek Co-ops Board and Management. The Grand Opening took place during Co-op Week in October of 1999, with over 300 people attending the celebration.
