August 3, 2018
This summer Central Region Cooperative (CRC) evaluated its business model on providing retail tire services from its Sleepy Eye shop location. These services are primarily used during the time of year when the cooperative’s two-person shop is striving to keep its rolling stock maintained to provide its core business services to patron members. Effective August 31, 2018 the retail tire division of CRC will cease tire sales and service. Financially, it is not in the best interest of the cooperative to increase staffing to adequately service seasonal tire needs.
We thank you for your past business and encourage you to consider keeping your tire business local by seeking out tire products and services from one of the local full-service providers.
The cooperative will continue to offer retail LP cylinders, lawn fertilizer and ice melt products for sale at the Sleepy Eye BCA/Shop location.
