Located in Canmore’s Spring Creek neighbourhood, The Alder Cafe + Grocery was a new build, tenant installation project in a new leasehold space.

Canmore’s first niche “Groceraunt” (Grocery + Restaurant) The Alder Cafe + Grocery features BC and Alberta farm products, ice cream creamery, a cafe, meal kits, and ready-made dinners. “An innovative agri-food business with a culinary tourism twist.”

“If you don’t have a project manager like ACS, you’re going to be pretty lost. ACS explained everything to us and coordinated very well with the other trades involved.”
