NEGAUNEE — At a meeting of the board of directors, Albert Hendrickson was named manager of the Negaunee Co-Op Services.

He succeeds Neal Ahola, who resigned to accept a position as credit union manager in Escanaba. The appointment of Hendrickson becomes effective May 1.

Hendrickson, who has conducted his own meat market and grocery business under the name of Hendrickson’s Grocery for the last 10 years, plans to liquidate his stock during the intervening period. Ahola has served as manager of the co-op store in Negaunee and an officer in the Negaunee Co-Op Credit Union for the last decade.
