Calgary grocery stores?

I am on a long visit to Calgary and am seeking advice on good local grocery stores, preferably in the southeast part of Calgary. I refuse to shop at wal-mart and am in search of a store with a good selection and a decent amount of organic foods. Being open late is a big plus, but the one 24 hour grocery I found had an awfully small selection. Thanks in advance for any input!

Safeway; Coop; Sobey's; Sunterra - have locations all over Calgary and all have organic products. Alternatively you can go to Planet Organic on Elbow Drive S.W.

How about a grocery store that we can stop at on our way from Calgary to Banff??

The last major grocery store in Calgary, on the route to Banff via the Trans-Canada (16th Ave N), is the Safeway at 5048 - 16 Ave NW (just west of the Home Road intersection) . There are also grocery stores in Canmore and Banff.

Just stop in at the Safeway right in Banff. The prices are not much different than in Calgary. At least that was my experience last summer.

I would stop in Canmore and visit Safeway or Sobey's. When I am in Canmore I stock up on my families favorites at Valbella meats.

As CW says, the last place in Calgary to stop on the way to Banff w/ a good organic selection would be the Safeway on 16th Ave NW. Otherwise, as others have suggested you could do your shopping in Canmore, or even at the Safeway right in Banff itself. Although most things are way more expensive in Banff, I have found the Safeway there to be only slightly more expensive than the Safeway stores here in Calgary.
