The Hepburn Co-op’s plan to build a gas bar/convenience store in Rosthern is finally underway. Groundbreaking of the project began on Wednesday, August 17.
“They started scraping the ground…(and) we hope the pilings will go in (soon),” said Hepburn Co-op General Manager Kori Fast. “Then our big rush is to get the tanks and the pavement in before the frost and cold weather approaches.”
Fast said they purchased the land for the gas bar, along Highway 312 and west of Highway 11 in 2013. After multiple rounds of blueprints and other decisions, the construction of 2,682 square foot gas bar has finally begun.
