Our profits are your profits because our members are also our owners. We’re 100% Calgary owned and operated.
We’re locally owned and operated with over 25 liquor stores, including 4 tasting centres in Calgary and the surrounding areas of High River, Cochrane, Okotoks, Strathmore and Airdrie.
Calgary Co-op Wine Spirits Beer is proud to be a division of the Calgary Co-operative Association Limited, one of the largest retail cooperatives in North America with 440,000 members, 3900+ employees, assets of $486 million and annual sales of over 1.3 billion.
After our purpose, Calgary Co-op is different in two other ways: profit distribution and control structure.
Business earnings are distributed to members based on their purchases in a given year through patronage and equity. Other businesses distribute their earnings according to the number of shares someone holds, or their role in the company.
The control structure is also different—all members own one share, get one vote and can run in our Board of Directors elections. Other businesses can be owned by a few people, or people with different percentages of ownership who make decisions on everyone else’s behalf.
We’re headquartered right here in Alberta and source products from Western Canada as much as possible.
Membership gives you the VIP treatment at no extra cost.
We contribute to the communities we’re a part of, through our environmental, social and governance initiatives.
Membership with Calgary Co-op brings you all kinds of benefits, at all of our locations: Food Stores, Gas Stations, Home Health Care, Cannabis and of course here at Wine Spirits Beer.
