History


POST 1975

This facility was opened for business in January 1980 with renovations in 1999 and 2004. The retail center services its members with food, family fashions, hardware, fencing supplies and lawn & garden supplies. We offer quality products with a hassle free guarantee. In 2006, Otter Co-op's Retail Centre underwent renovations to accommodate a Pharmacy. In 2008, we also enlarged our Cafe/Deli to include a salad bar, and more choices of food.

Otter Co-op’s modern Bulk Plant includes a sales office and oil storage warehouse, both of which opened in February 1984. Through this facility, we supply petroleum products to farms and heating fuels to homes in the area. Today, we operate a modern Feed mill having completed several major expansions since 2001, which include a new warehouse and an automated feed sacking system.
We have a Gas Bar at 248th Street and Fraser Highway, Aldergrove, British Columbia, which handles all kinds of automotive fuels including propane and farm gas. Diesel fuel and propane are dispensed form a card lock facility at this location.

Another Gas Bar/Convenience Store location at 168th Street and 104th Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia, was added in 2003. This location has just been rebuilt.

In 2008, we purchase a Gas Bar, Convenience Store and Touchless car wash at 6420 Ladner Trunk Road, Ladner. Also in 2008, we built another Gas Bar and Convenience Store (at Fraser Highway and Ross Road, Abbotsford).

In April of 2009, we purchased a Gas Bar located at Highway 1 and 264 Street in Aldergrove, and amalgamated with Consumers Co-op in Pitt Meadows.

2011 saw the addition of our full-service Pharmacy in the Glen Mountain area of Abbotsford.

Otter continued to expand with our Hatzic Gas Bar, located on Lougheed Hwy in Mission, in November 2013. Our most recent acquisitions include Otter @ Blue Jay, Otter @ Mt Lehman and Otter at Progress Way Chilliwack in 2014, Otter @ Penticton in 2015 and the upcoming West Kelowna gas bar in 2017.
