Celebrating 80 Years

The gas station at 3rd & Black Hills in Alliance, known as Terrible Terry's, was purchased in 1942 to establish Consumers Cooperative Association. Now, 80 years later, the site still serves as WESTCO's Main C-Store location as well as the home business office. 

In May of 1942, ten individuals each put up $10 to form the equity used to purchase the Terrible Terry’s gas station located at 3rd and Black Hills in Alliance. The purchase established Consumers Cooperative Association and laid the foundation for the cooperative which now includes six divisions, 220 employees and locations in 17 communities throughout the Wyo-Braska region.  

In 1982 the company changed its name to Alliance Cooperative Association. Eleven years later, the moniker Western Cooperative Company, or WESTCO was chosen to include the many communities the cooperative serves. No matter the name, WESTCO has always remained community minded, supporting area youth, service organizations, non-profits and distributing millions of dollars in member equity distributions. 

WESTCO thanks our patrons for making our first 80 years possible and we look forward to serving the area for many years to come.
