FORT ST. JOHN -- The Co-op Cardlock in Fort St. John on 91st Avenue has re-opened following what the company is calling a cybersecurity incident.

Co-op says some of its systems at stores across Western Canada are still down following a cybersecurity incident the company disclosed on Thursday.

In a tweet, Federated Co-op Ltd. confirms the incident has impacted some of its customer-facing systems and could still impact its inventory of certain grocery items.

Co-op first tweeted about the incident on Thursday, saying it was affecting its stores and cardlock fuel stations.

FCL said it had shut down some of its systems as a precautionary measure and brought in third-part experts to investigate.

In another post late Friday afternoon, FCL said some of its cardlocks were open again.

The company says in the event that changes it will take the appropriate action.

Co-op has several stores and gas stations in Canada, with the business mainly operating in the western provinces.
