There is now an opening date for Richmond’s newest T & T Supermarket, which will be the largest store in the country for the chain.

T & T Supermarket plans to have the grand opening of its store at Lansdowne Centre on Thursday, August 16 at 10 am. The store spans 70,000 sq. ft. within the former space of Target on the southeast corner of the sprawling mall property.

However, the store will be a temporary location that will be open for approximately 10 years, until the phased redevelopment of Lansdowne Centre necessitates the demolition of the space T&T Supermarket is located within.

According to the redevelopment plans by mall owner Vanprop Investments Ltd., the future mixed-use neighbourhood that will replace the existing mall building will consist of residential uses, office space, and retail space for large anchor tenants, including a space for a large grocery store.

The move into the former Target space on a temporary basis makes sense as it enables T&T Supermarket to quickly retain and capture more of the local grocery store market, which is rapidly growing from downtown Richmond’s rising population.

There are already two other T & T Supermarket locations within a two sq. km. radius – the other stores are located at Yaohan Centre and within a new development just across from Richmond Olympic Oval.

Up until 2015, the chain previously had a small store within President Plaza, located between Yaohan Centre and Aberdeen Centre.

Before the end of the year, T & T Supermarket will open a new 33,000-sq-ft store location within the new Kensington Gardens redevelopment by Westbank at 2220 Kingsway in East Vancouver.
