General Manager's Welcome
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the members of Prairie Roots Consumers Co-operative Limited.
It seems like yesterday that the successful votes were made by the members of Marquette and Elm Creek Co-ops. Board and management have been diligently working on putting the two co-operatives together and we look forward to giving you the same great service as in the past.
This is an exciting time for us as we move forward together and strengthen our positions in supporting our communities. There will be some structural and operational changes throughout the organization but for the most part won’t impact the daily experience the membership has had with its co-operatives. The amalgamation is and will be a work in progress for the foreseeable future.
The staff has been great in all locations in working with the structural and operational changes we have made to merge the two retails. Change can be a difficult thing but I’m proud to have seen the awesome commitment and dedication to our new co-operative that our staff has.
The membership has embraced this proactive movement and we appreciate the participation in the new name selection and support with the final decision.
Our past is very important to us. Knowing where we came from and why we are here in our communities should never be forgotten. Prairie Roots was an excellent name choice and will serve us as a reminder of our great past. It also signifies the start of something grand and strong for the future, that can become whatever the membership decides to make it.
I would like to wish all of our members of Prairie Roots Co-op a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season. This is the best time of the year to enjoy time with your family and friends.
From staff, board, and management, we look forward to serving you and appreciate your great continued support. Thank you.
Calvin Janke, General Manager,
Prairie Roots Co-op

I would like to thank all of the Members, Staff & Board for their support of our Co-op over the past 22 years that I have been fortunate enough to lead as the General Manager.
I do look forward to my new role as a Division Manager overseeing our 3 General Stores and assisting Calvin and our Prairie Roots team on into the future.

Don’t be afraid to grocery shop at our Elm Creek location. Our everyday prices can be less than Canada wide chains. Sometimes what you pay in gas money doesn’t save on your grocery bill. Support your local community!
