“We are very proud of this mark in sales.”

Hillary noted going back a decade, there were 9,800 members in 2008 compared to 13,750 now - an increase of 40 percent. 

“We’ve gone from 145 employees to 215 now - a 48 percent increase that means now we serve about 20 to 25K customers each week.” 

Controller Deanna Larson said the year broke down to $65 million in petroleum sales, $17 million in home centre sales, $13 million at Rolla Ag and $10 million in food sales.

Board chair Tyler Marion said the $100 million in sales is a monumental achievement.

“We meet challenges each year. We are not only not afraid of competition - we see it as an opportunity to re-assess and raise our bar.”

Director Judy Clavier noted the FCL returned $789 million returned to local co-ops.

“The results are an energy.”
