Neudorf’s only grocery store closing down
After 17 years, Neudorf’s only grocery store will close its doors for good on February 28. Neufoods Co-op store manager Louise Rathgeber says it is closing because people chose to shop at big box stores, like Walmart or Costco, in Yorkton and Regina.
In the town of less than 300 the Co-op serves as a community hub. It also has a small restaurant and shortly after noon on Friday it has about 10 people, all sitting in groups, chatting and eating. For more information, VISIT HERE.
