The Shooting Edge

Established in 2000, Calgary’s first and largest indoor shooting range offers 30,000 square feet of range, retail, training and special event facilities. There are 16 indoor shooting lanes across three bays, including the only indoor 50-yard rifle bay in the city. Those who don’t shoot can try laser axe-throwing in the axe-throwing entertainment centre, which has six lanes and a choice of more than 20 games.

 

Calgary Farmers’ Market South

This bustling Calgary Farmers’ Market location welcomes more than 1 million visitors annually. There are 78 vendors offering a range of goods, including fresh and prepared foods, artworks, jewellery and other items. The 55,000-square-foot space encompasses a food hall with seating for 300, a kids’ play area (a.k.a. the “Barnyard”) and a licensed outdoor patio open during the summer.

 

The Laundry Store

This family-owned appliance retailer specializes in selling, delivering and installing a range of North American and European appliance brands of washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, ranges and more. It promises a relaxing showroom and shopping experience hosted by a team of no-commission product specialists.

 

Romero Distilling Co.

Father-son duo Diego and Tomas Romero operate this craft distillery and cocktail bar specializing in rum and sugarcane spirits, including an award-winning bourbon-barrel-aged dark rum. In 2022, Romero Distilling set a Guinness World Record for mixing the world’s largest Cuba libre cocktail, at 1,006 litres. Another fun fact: Wrestling legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart is a partner.

 

Lamborghini Calgary

A division of Grand Touring Automobiles Calgary, which owns auto dealerships across Canada, this dealership and showroom opened in 2015. The showroom is closed for renovations until spring, while the dealership operates temporarily out of the nearby Aston Martin/Bentley dealership. When it reopens, Lamborghini will occupy the main floor with Rolls Royce on the upper.
