Both Fireside and Sunset Ridge are losing local eateries at the start of the next month. 

"With great disappointment we must inform you that effective March 1, 2023, the Canadian Italian Restaurant Group (CIRG) will be closing The Stump Tavern, PZA Parlour Cochrane and Blacksmith Pub," details a social media post released late Thursday evening. 

"While not all our entities in Cochrane were underperforming, the economics no longer work to sustain these businesses in your beloved town. We appreciate all the support we have received from our regular customers over the years."

CIRG says that the Cochrane Baking Company in Sunset Ridge will remain open as well as its restaurants in Calgary. 

"Thank you all for the support during these last 3 years! We will miss this amazing community!"
