Community Natural Foods is set to open a new store in the Edmonton community of Old Strathcona this June.
The location will be the Calgary Co-op banner’s fourth in Alberta, and its first outside Calgary.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to introduce this long-established and well-respected health food store to the Edmonton market, one that is currently underserved in the health food retail space,” said Ken Keelor, CEO Calgary Co-op and president Community Natural Foods, in a statement.
The over 10,000 square foot store will offer an array of organic produce, meat and dairy; a selection of grocery items; a supplement and natural body care section; and a fresh juice, elixir, smoothie and grab n’ go bar.
Free educational events in support of whole food nutrition, sustainability and general wellness will also be offered.
The store opening will create approximately 40 jobs, and recruitment is underway.
