Shellbrook Agro Centre Grand Opening was a huge success
April 28, 2023

We are so AG-cited to have officially opened our Agro Centre located at 400 – 7th Street East in Shellbrook on April 24, 2023. We saw over 1400 customers come throughout the day to enjoy the festivities. The day kicked off with a pancake breakfast sponsored by T.W. Enterprises followed by livestock and dry fertilizer plant working demos. Our grand opening ceremonies included an address from Brynn Jones (Ministry of Agriculture), Amund Otterson (Town of Shellbrook Mayor), Doug Oleksyn (RM of Shellbrook Reeve), Jeff Rothwell (Shellbrook Agro Team Leader), Rick Kindrachuk (Lake Country Co-op Board President), and Tim Keller (CEO). There were over 30 supplier booths present for producers to mingle and interact with. Customers enjoyed a Beef on a Bun lunch sponsored by Eagle Builders and catered by Neighbourhood Caterers. Throughout the day, there were over $25,000 in major prizes to be won that were donated by all our amazing sponsors. To wind up the memorable grand opening we had recording artist Stephanie Rose perform during our Warehouse Social where hors d’oeuvres, sponsored by Ruszkowski Enterprises Ltd. and catered by Amanda’s Pizza were served.

We would like to thank our 200 plus sponsors/service providers and contractors for helping to make this day an overwhelming success!
