A successful summer party!

300 members, colleagues, friends and families of La Coop Unifrontières gathered at Domaine Labranche in St-Isidore-de-Laprairie on July 12 to celebrate the cooperative and the summer season! For the 2019 edition of this traditional annual celebration, the Desgroseillers family, owner of Domaine Labranche, offered to host the event. More than 50 employees accompanied by their families and nearly 40 farms were represented at the event. The weather was mild, so the guests enjoyed a visit to the vineyard and orchard, the giant table football game, a module for children, the services of a make-up artist and tastings. New this year: a photo booth truck! The guests were able to take some funny pictures and leave with a souvenir. The always very popular street food trucks were on hand to satisfy the stomachs: Patate Mallette, Pizza wood oven (Pizza Four à bois) and Smoking BBQ. As the cooperative is committed to its environmental values, reusable glasses were given to each guest. No plastic bottles were available on the site! The empty bottles from the Champ Libre microbrewery in Mercier were all returned, as were those from Domaine Labranche. To take advantage of the self-service slush machine, cardboard straws as well as reusable straws were offered. The message is clear: Unifrontières Coop affirms its position as an eco-responsible organization during its activities. This evening was a success thanks to the generous participation of partners: Farm Credit Canada, La Coop Fédérée, Desjardins, Crookham, Crookham, BASF, Eurofins, Vilmorin, Enza Zaden, Rijk Zwaan, Johnny's Selected Seeds, Seminis, SLX Logistics, Thibert Transport, Agro-Bio Contrôle inc., Pinnacle Seed, Harris Moran, LLG CPA inc. and Laiterie Coaticook & Brasserie Champ Libre.

Hugo Girard will be at BMR Napierville

To officially mark the opening of the recently renovated Napierville BMR, La Coop Unifrontières is organizing a party on Monday, May 20 from noon to 4 pm with Hugo Girard. "We are extremely proud of our store, which has undergone both domestic and outdoor renovations over the last year," says Diane Proulx, Director of La Coop Unifrontières hardware stores. In particular, we have a new assortment of products for the home as well as an agricultural section. We want to make it a model branch, from which other hardware stores can draw inspiration. We have a great dynamic team and ideas to constantly offer the best service to customers. " A big sale of the manager with smashing discounts on several products, enhanced by a large liquidation in the tent, will be held from Friday, May 17 to Monday, May 20, the day of the party. For the occasion, Hugo Girard, spokesman for the BMR Group, will be on site from noon to 4 pm. The rash will have the chance to compete with him in a showdown. Indeed, Hugo challenges you to lift the Louis Cyr, a weight of 150 pounds! Interesting fact: Louis Cyr was born in Saint-Cyprien-de-Napierville on October 10, 1863. A renowned man, he never refused a challenge and was never defeated in his country or abroad. In addition to entertainment, hot dogs and beverages will be served for free and a DJ will provide the musical atmosphere. A contest will allow a lucky person to win a BBQ worth $ 300. The prize will be randomly selected on May 20 in the late afternoon from customers who made a purchase at the BMR Napierville from May 17 to May 20. For more details, check out the Napierville BMR Facebook page.
