Saskatchewan premier says warehouse centre expansion helps growing economy

REGINA - Premier Brad Wall says a mammoth business logistics centre in Regina is helping support Saskatchewan's expanding economy.

Wall was on hand Monday to help celebrate the latest phase of the CLS distribution centre and transportation hub in Regina.

The massive warehouse serves as a distribution centre for a major chain of grocery stores in the province and services the trucking industry.

CLS says the centre is working three shifts, seven days per week.

It stores and transports 30 million cases of goods a year.
