Foodies rejoice! Convenient shopping for your favourite ingredients and kitchen basics will be steps away with the opening of Calgary Co-op’s expansive new grocery store in Greystone, Cochrane. Residents in the neighbourhood will enjoy unparalleled convenience for daily needs.

 

Cochrane welcomes a significant addition to its retail sector with the ground-breaking of the store in the fast-growing and revitalized downtown neighbourhood.

 

The expansive 41,275-square-foot store, scheduled to open in the summer of 2025, will anchor the rapidly growing residential community’s vibrant and pedestrian-friendly shopping hub.

 

Cochrane residents will catch a break from their hurried lives and find easy access by car via arterial roads to the shopping district north of the SLS Recreation Centre, a one-stop destination.

  

Meanwhile, the plaza will border a pedestrian-focused high street inspired by quaint small-town storefronts, wide sidewalks, angled parking in front, and larger parking lots behind.

 

Greystone residents will be spoiled with the convenient location of this bustling marketplace and hub for in-person connections.



Co-op is blocks away in Greystone. Residents do not have to endure lengthy commutes across highways and clogged intersections for their regular grocery run.

 

Unlike outlying suburban developments, the inner-city location means residents here do not have to endure lengthy commutes across highways and clogged intersections for their regular grocery run. Instead, they’ll be a quick drive or walk a few blocks away to grab items for flavourful home-cooked meals and more.

 

Cochrane Mayor Jeff Genung says: “The type of growth we’re trying to encourage in Cochrane is not just about expansion; it’s about nurturing the success stories of tomorrow.”


A range of planned services under the Co-op brand will allow shoppers to fuel up, bag up every grocery item on their list, or pick up wine or cocktail fixings at one plaza. Services include a cannabis store, a car wash, and a convenience store.

 

Construction of the Co-op set of shops will create 150 local jobs upon opening and employ over 750 workers during construction.

 

The Calgary Co-op project is part of a broader plan that includes an additional 31,000 square feet of commercial retail space. The first tenants will be announced this summer. To provide a diversified shopping experience, the remaining lease spaces are expected to be filled with local businesses or national chains.

 



Cochrane residents say they are seeking balance, an easy pace for daily living, and low-stress commutes in their community. Meanwhile, healthy eating options are blocks away, supporting a predominantly active community expected to settle into the future phases of the Greystone residential community.

Community and local connections

The new store has something planned for every tastebud, whether you’re a home chef or a busy parent. Calgary Co-op emphasizes a “buy local” strategy to stock its shelves, catering to the growing interest in Alberta-made products. Shoppers will find farm-to-table options from regional businesses. They can indulge in fresh bakery treats, top cuts for the grill, and a vast deli with artisanal cheeses and savoury items.

 

Is Cochrane a good place to live?

 

The development of the Calgary Co-op gathered feedback from Cochrane residents regarding the design, which resulted in features that aligned with customer expectations, including spots for social connection and slowing down.

 

In recent years, newcomers have been drawn to Cochrane and Greystone because they offer the possibility of living a whole, balanced life—where there’s a slower, more deliberate rhythm and the distance between home, health, and connections is just a short walk away.

 

The Calgary Co-op in Greystone represents a long-term investment in the community, adding to its history of feeding and serving Calgary and the surrounding areas since 1956, with more than 440,000 members.

 

Being a part of the community is extremely important to Calgary Co-op. The stores and their members contribute significantly to Calgary and the surrounding area. Supporting food banks and focusing on food security is a major priority for its members and the Calgary Co-op Foundation. This year, the Calgary Co-op Foundation has pledged $3.3 million to the community, and last year, it contributed over $3 million in food and funds.
