BOARD OF DIRECTORS & MANAGEMENT
Organized in July of 1936, Pioneer Co-op has become a fixture in the community of Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Pioneer Co-op has grown from a simple service station to a place that will satisfy all of your shopping needs. Membership has its benefits. Pioneer Co-op is locally owned and controlled by its members. Profit is returned to the members based on their patronage.
Thanks to all our members for your patience during Pioneer Co-op renovations at our Wheatland Mall location. As you see the results of all of the time and work that has gone into this project has been well worth the wait. Please come in to see our newly renovated store for all your storing needs.
Pioneer Co-operative Association Ltd.
It was early 1936 in Swift Current. The Swift Current Oil and Gas Co. Ltd. was in existence, with R.E. West as Chairman of the Board, N.E. (Cy) Cowan as Secretary, and J.O. Grinder as Manager. The company was in the gas and oil business at a location on Fourth Ave. N.W. between Chaplin and Cheadle Streets.
There was also a branch of the company at Stewart Valley. At a meeting on April 11, 1936, the Board of the Swift Current Oil and Gas Co. Ltd. passed a motion to call an extraordinary meeting of its shareholders to consider reorganizing the company as a co-operative.
