Last year the Calgary Co-Op celebrated 65 years of serving its community.
“It is very, very important to focus on financial sustainability,” said Co-Op CEO Ken Keelor in an interview published in December. “You can have all the heart and wonderful culture and all of that stuff, but if you are not financially sustainable you’re done. You can’t serve your community. You can’t serve anyone. I think where a lot of companies, especially those that are sort of much more socially focused like we are, can lose their focus is where the management team, leadership and board, lose track of the fact that you have to be financially sustainable.”
The Co-Op has more than 440,000 members and 30 wine, spirits, and beer locations.
We couldn’t be more proud to be part of this amazing community! Thank you Calgary Co-Op for your support!
