Calgary Co-op celebrates grand opening of two new Co-op Wine Spirits Beer locations in Panorama Hills and the Town of Cochrane

October 10, 2017 (Calgary, Alberta) – Co-op Wine Spirits Beer is excited to announce the opening of two new locations in the community of Panorama Hills and the town of Cochrane.

The opening of the new locations comes after the acquisition of two Ace Liquor locations and represents a key part in Calgary Co-op’s growth strategy.

“Our commitment to our members to provide exceptional customer experiences and services was a key driving factor in the decision to open the two new locations,” said Damon Tanzola, vice president, facilities development and real estate. “Cochrane, in particular, has been on our radar for some time, so we are very pleased with the opportunity to expand our services to this community.”

Each location is approximately 3,000 square feet, and will feature a tailored offering to meet the unique needs of each community, while offering the service, selection and expertise Co-op members have come to trust. The hours of operation for these stores are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Co-op Wine Spirits Beer offers a variety unparalleled in this community with 1,000 wines, 370 spirits including 170 whiskies and 600 varieties of beer from around the world. Members will enjoy the opportunity to sample with weekend tastings happening until the end of this year.
