Coop fédérée to close Trois-Rivières DC

TROIS-RIVIÈRES, Que. — La Coop fédérée has announced that it will begin closing its hardware and building materials distribution centre located here.

However, the DC’s agricultural machinery and parts activities will be maintained. La Coop fédérée estimates that the closure will be completed by the spring of 2015. The closure is part of the consolidation of the resources of BMR, which La Coop took a 20% interest in late last year. Much of the activities of this DC are expected to be taken over by BMR’s infrastructure.
