A new grocery co-op project is being tested in the township of Opasatika and Val Rita-Harty.

The market study is being done by the Opasatika and Val Rita-Harty Economic Development Committee, in order to evaluate community interest in the project.

The township of Opasatika and Val Rita-Harty Economic Development Officer Alain Robichaud says surveys have been sent out to the community as of this past Friday.

He says the study is expected to last two weeks, and will help provide information to better understand the population’s interest in this initiative.
