Denmark Chamber members gathered at Boston Brewing Co to celebrate Denmark Co-operative’s Centenary at the October Business After Hours. Great food and drinks were enjoyed by over 75 chamber members as the sun went down on a perfect spring evening.
CEO of Denmark Co-operative Chris Langslow addressed those present which included Denmark Co-operative Board Directors, Adrian Kranendonk, Steve Hawks, Tony Wilson, Belinda Rowland and Barbara Marshall. Chris acknowledged that the Co-op has had its up and downs during its 100 year history but since 2008 the Denmark Co-op has been in increasingly good shape. Currently employing 16 staff and supported by 1,045 shareholders from the local area, Denmark Co-op is set to continue to make a positive difference to our local business community. Let’s hope for another 100 years.
All locals can support Denmark Co-operative by considering joining the Board, becoming a shareholder (which comes with shopping discount benefits) or by simply shopping there.
Jimi Talbot from Boston Brewing Co spoke about the recent expansion to their brewery with plans unfolding to export into Asia and Interstate. Jimi said that they now have 3 gluten free options available which include Apple Cider and Ginger Beer. He is looking forward to bringing back the popular quiz nights and live music in the near future and is expecting a booming trade over the summer. He is looking to triple his workforce before then.
Our lucky draw prize winner was Steve Ayling from Biodiverse Solutions who took home a $50 voucher for Denmark Co-operative.
