The Prince Albert & District Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Econo Timber Mart on their recent ABEX Award nomination. Econo Timber Mart has been nominated for an ABEX Award in the Community Cornerstone category.
The award recognizes a small business with deep roots in the community that also demonstrates great pride and support of the local area. The 2015 ABEX awards will be given out October 24 at a ceremony hosted by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
Vic and Curtis Lemieux should be congratulated for their work in the local community. Econo Timber Mart is a longtime member of the Prince Albert & District Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber is excited to show our support for this local community booster.
“The Prince Albert & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to see another local finalist for the 2015 Community Cornerstone award,” said Prince Albert & District Chamber of Commerce CEO, Larry Fladager.
“Econo Timber Mart is a well-known local business with deep roots in Prince Albert. Their commitment to the local community is an important part of their business and the Chamber looks forward to promoting Econo Timber Mart once the online voting process begins.”
Five businesses from around the province have been nominated for the 2015 Community Cornerstone Award. The award is sponsored by SaskEnergy. The category uses social media to determine the winner with voting set to begin in mid-September.
The Saskatchewan ABEX Awards are hosted by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
“This is a tremendously exciting ABEX Award,” said Steve McLellan, CEO of the Sask Chamber. “Last year in its first year, there was a neck-and-neck race between the finalists, and Ted Matheson Men’s Wear of Prince Albert came out on top. Both the finalists and their local chambers engaged with their clients and communities, encouraging people to cast votes. By using social media and public voting, this award gives communities of all sizes the chance to showcase their community, and how a business can embody the spirit of its community.”
