Major grocer plans to open shop in Stonebridge area of Saskatoon

City council approved a rezoning application from the Saskatoon Co-operative Association Monday that will allow for construction of a 30,000 square foot grocery store to be located to the south of the existing Co-op convenience store and gas station at Stonebridge Boulevard and Clarence Avenue. The major Saskatoon grocer will undoubtedly be welcome in the quickly growing Stonebridge area and should be able to attract customers from the Willows and number of other residential areas located just north of Highway 11.

Construction on the new grocery store could begin as early as the spring of 2011 and wrap up before the end of the year if all goes well. The store will ultimately employ 80-100 people according to Grant Wicks, general manager of Saskatoon Co-op.

  1. Sounds good to me – right now we usually shop at the Safeway in Centre mall, so this will be quite a bit more convenient. I’m curious if development like this ever influences house prices in the vicinity?

    • That’s a great question Nate.

      Over time, all of these types of amenities add value to a neighbourhood and the homes that are there. Your home won’t necessarily get an immediate value bump from a new grocery store, but in the long run the home is worth more because a range of services are available nearby.

      By the way, I’m under the impression that you may have picked up a new job. Congratulations! It looks like it would be a fun place to work.
