Storefront Improvement Program

The  Spruce Grove City Centre Storefront Improvement Program (SIP) provides funding to commercial property and business owners in the City Centre to make exterior improvements to their storefronts. This program can: 

  • Increase sales and foot-traffic by improving window shopping and curb appeal;
  • Encourage a high standard of storefront maintenance;
  • Renew existing businesses, attract new businesses, and fill vacancies.


The City of Spruce Grove has allocated $75,000 to provide 50% matching grants of up to a maximum of $7,500 per storefront or up to $10,000 for improvements on a street corner where improvements are made to two façades. The funding is available on a first-come first-serve basis until the funding has been committed. 


  • Eligible storefronts are purpose-built commercial units accessed from the ground level.
  • Home-based businesses do not qualify.
  • The program applies to properties and businesses located within the City Centre Storefront Improvement Program Area.
