Work has begun on construction of a new Otter Co-op gas bar in Chilliwack.

The facility, located on Progress Way, includes a 7,200 square foot building, gas bar and convenience store, cardlock, and a large bulk petroleum storage facility.

Company representatives say the expansion is being undertaken to expand the services and products to its members, and to prepare for the future growth its bulk petroleum department has been experiencing throughout the Lower Mainland.

The Chilliwack location will add sales in excess of $70 million a year to Otter Co-op’s petroleum division, and produce a healthy bottom line which in turn is given back to co-op members through equity and cash.

It is expected to be completed by September, and will create 20-25 jobs in Chilliwack.
