Prairie Sky Co-op announced this week they have sold the assets and inventory of Expressions Ladies Wear to Weyburn’s Christy Sanderson. The announcement was made via press release.

Don Kraft, the general manager of Prairie Sky Co-op, explained the decision was made due to changes at the wholesale level by Federated Co-operatives.

“They no longer carry or support the fashions department, and the reason for that is there was such a small number of co-operatives that were in the fashions department,” said Kraft.

Co-operatives had originally expanded into fashions as a way to be all things to all people, but increased in the competition saw various co-operatives shutter clothing stores. Including Expressions, Kraft estimated there were five clothing stores owned by a co-operative remaining in western Canada.

Sanderson, who will be operating the store out of the existing location in the Metro Centre in downtown Weyburn, is no stranger to running a business in the community.

“She owns Old Fashioned Foods, and she owns Co-Co Bee,” said Kraft. “Christy had showed a keen interest in continuing on in the fashion business and expanding it.”

Sanderson will officially take over the business on November 1st.
