North Central Co-op is extremely excited to announce that they will joining the Riverside Landing community in St. Albert in 2022! Working with Hopewell Developers, North Central Co-op will open a 32,000 square foot food store with a pharmacy, along with a gas bar and liquor store in the southwest portion of St. Albert, with access close to Ray Gibbon Drive.
This is the first Co-op Grocery location in St. Albert and second new multi-development location for North Central Co-op, which represents a new growth chapter for the Association. From humble beginnings, North Central Co-op has grown to serve communities in Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan, Legal, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Sherwood Park, and now St. Albert.
According to North Central Co-op's CEO, Dean McKim, “Co-op does business a little differently. Our profits are shared locally with our members and reinvested back into the communities we serve.” He adds that, “Investing in St. Albert means more than just laying brick and mortar, it means making an investment in the people and community of St. Albert.”
Carla Debert, Marketing and Community Relations Manager, reiterates that point by adding, “As a co-operative, we have an obligation to support and strengthen the communities we serve. We have already started working with St. Albert organizations and groups to support initiatives that matter to the community of St. Albert and our future customers.”
For more construction updates and information, future customers are encouraged to follow North Central Co-op on social media. Construction will begin in the spring of 2021 and the full project is slated to be complete in early 2022.
