Sobeys has announced the first 10 FreshCo locations will be opening in BC this year.
The brand’s discount grocery store will be replacing now-shuttered Sobeys-owned Safeways in Metro Vancouver and beyond.
Five FreshCo locations are slated to open in spring 2019, replacing closed Safeway stores including the following.
Five current Safeway locations will be temporarily closed and reopened as FreshCo stores too.
The following locations will be temporarily closed for four-to-five months for renovations.
All locations (except the Ladner one) will continue to operate temporary pharmacies while renovations and construction are underway.
Known for their “quality food at discount prices,” FreshCo offers customers the lowest price guaranteed (they price match), double fresh guaranteed (they will replace and reimburse an unsatisfactory product), and if something is out of stock, the store will give customers “a rain check + 10% off.”
