ELBURN—The Elburn Co-op’s Blackberry Station retail store is no more.

It’s now known as the Elburn Cooperative Feed store.

The Elburn Cooperative website states that Blackberry Station was closed July 6 and 7 for remodeling and inventory purposes, and re-opened as the Elburn Cooperative Feed store on July 8. Other changes made to the company’s retail operations include remodeling of its Elburn building space in order to relocate Elburn and Meredith Road employees.

Despite the name change, the store will still sell feed and some pet food, as well.

“We’re getting back to basics; getting back to what’s worked the last 80 years … putting a new face on it,” said Mike Kinsella, location manager of Elburn Cooperative’s Morris Terminal. “We’re sorry for the inconvenience and, hopefully, we can do the best we can do to help serve our customers.”

According to Elburn Cooperative’s website, all livestock supply deliveries will now be handled by the company’s Midland Crossing store on Highway 71 in Newark, Ill.
