Grocery Stores
#21
I always thought it odd that when Super Store has product X on sale, Zehrs will not price match... Yet SS will price match Zehrs.  Its all the same company, coming from the same warehouse, why not make that Zehrs customer happy???

Getting out of the Franklin/Can-Amera plaza is awful. I work near there and like going to Pita Pit for lunch, but it's such a pain to get out of and head back West on Can-Amera that I usually just end up going to Fast Eddy's instead.

We shop at Zehrs at Ottawa and River when we need lots of groceries, but have shifted more toward Valu-Mart at Frederick Mall in the last year or so. It feels much more "local" and we've gotten to know many of the staff there. Feels much more community-like, haha.

Canadian Tire plaza at Fairway/Wilson.  The grocery store will be in the old Pier 1/BMO area.  I saw a sign that Beat Goes On is relocation, so maybe the store goes back that far... not sure.

I only learned about the new Farm Boy from the piece in today's e-Record. I am indeed very happy - I was a big Farm Boy fan when I lived in Ottawa. I suspect that it won't be long before they open stores in Waterloo and Guelph as well.

Speaking of supermarkets, has anyone heard anything about the new Asian supermarket that's supposed to open in the old car dealership on Ottawa St N? I would have expected renovations to be underway by now, but the site seems untouched.

Wasn't that supposed to be a T&T?  (Yet another Loblaws brand ...)

And, no, I haven't seen anything on that front for a long time.

I am not familiar with Farm Boy. I read on their website the store will be 22,000 sq ft. Is this a normal size for their stores? It seems small.
