Stockholders should get vote on Co-op plan

I want to get other people's feelings about Country Pride's sale of the Cenex station to another big business.
I have nothing against Kwik Trip. It's a nice, clean convenience store.
But I feel what Windom will be losing is a place to get service on vehicles, which will be really missed, especially when it's at a time when you really need service and you need it now - a time when every hour of every day counts (such as planting time). A flat tire can come at the worst time.
It is also a place where our neighbors and friends work to earn a living and support their families. A station without service is another "Walmart," closing out all of the other small businesses.
If the sale goes through, where is the big money going to go?
I feel Country Pride should be open. Its customers and stockholders should get some vote on the future of its Co-op.
Bigger isn't always better.
