Shopping

 

Historic Downtown Cochrane (HDC) is a great place to find local shops, but did you know there are many shopping hotspots in the other districts of town, too? East End stretches from Centre Ave to River Ave. Cochranites love the plethora of stores on 5th Ave. South of HDC you will find the Quarry and Railway and across the bridge and up the hill, Embers of Fireside. North of HDC, the Sunset Trading Post is growing with lots of new businesses!
