Itay, our newest staff member, helped a lady fill up her tires. The lady then came inside asked the staff what their favorite coffee break snack was. She said "I always get such great customer service here that I like to give back to you guys." She bought all of the staff a chocolate bar. Thank you Itay and the rest of our staff for showing great service.

Interest is starting to pick up in the 2016-17 flu vaccination. The public (free) vaccine will be available province-wide starting October 31, including at each of our four pharmacies.
Last flu season we provided nearly 2500 flu shots, and we are looking to better that number.
Starting this week, we will be taking appointments at all Saskatoon Co-op Pharmacies.
One of the first parts of The Co-op Week - It’s a Co-op Thing promotion is a contest just for employees. Any Co-op employee can enter the contest with a chance to win one of two Apple Macbook laptops! Please see attached poster.
You can enter online at: http://www.co-opstories.ca/wps/portal/
Contest is open: October 3 - November 14.
The 2016 United Way Campaign kicked off at the Annual General Staff Meeting! Dan was our guest speaker and you can see his story here: https://vimeo.com/76079132
The campaign runs from October 2, 2016 until October 23, 2016. We will have pledge forms available for every attendee at the GSM, and extra pledge forms are available on the employee website for printing.
Saskatoon Co-op matches dollar for dollar every employee donation! Every single donation goes a long way, and every dollar matters! As well, there are numerous prizes available to be won.
Please send the pledge forms into HR once they have been completed.
Each location will also receive “Change Meter” containers in the mail. We encourage staff to contribute their spare change towards the United Way. As a reminder, the “Change Meter” containers are for Staff Only as this is an employee fundraiser, so please keep them in either the staff room or the Managers’ office.
We can make a difference!
