Burgers and soft drinks were available over the midday hours last Thursday when the Wadena Co-op Home Centre held its grand opening, complete with celebratory cake and a ribbon-cutting by the mayor of Wadena.

Proceeds from the barbecue were earmarked to benefit Wadena’s new food bank, and supporters flocked over to chat with friends beneath the hot sun and have a look at the interior of the store, which has undergone some renovations since it was purchased by the Co-op in January this year.

The Co-op in Wadena now employs more than 70 people and operates the food store, hardware store and greenhouse, cardlock, gas bar and convenience store, as well as the home centre.
