In the near future Tumbler Ridge will have access to gas up their vehicles 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The Dawson Co-op is planning to build a bulk fuel and cardlock site on the outskirts of town, where Highway 29 meets the Heritage Highway.
To apply for your Co-op System Wide card, you can stop by the Dawson Co-op to pick up an application form. If your not planning on making a trip out of town, then just wait a little while longer, because the Co-op is making arrangements with Lakeview Credit Union to have them as a pick up and drop off location for application forms.
For just a $10 membership fee you have a share in the Dawson Co-op, the availability to gas up at any Co-op Cardlock in Canada, and equity is earned with every purchase. The price of fuel is competitively priced, The advantage for commercial buyers is that the more you spend the less you pay.
Construction will commence this year weather permitting. It is our hope to be providing fuel before Christmas, but if the winter cold is too severe it will be early spring when fuel will be available. There will be an opportunity locally and throughout the Peace Region for a bid to tender for the construction.
