Farm Boy to open second Etobicoke, Ont. location

Empire-owned banner continues to grow with plans for two additional locations by the end of the year

Empire-owned Farm Boy is opening its second Etobicoke location, a 25,452 sq. ft. space in a condominium, retail complex located steps away from the Kipling subway station.

The store, Farm Boy’s 41st in Ontario, opens Sept. 16. It will employ 136 staff members and will offer a wide variety of farm fresh produce, butcher-quality meats, artisan cheese, fresh dairy and plenty of plant-based and vegan options.

“As we continue to introduce our concept in Toronto and the GTA, we are grateful to all Torontonians who have become, and continue to be, loyal Farm Boy customers,” said Jean Louis Bellemare, president and general manager, Farm Boy.

“We are excited to be opening our second location in Etobicoke and look forward to providing our customers with a true fresh market shopping experience,” he added.

Empire has been aggressively growing the Farm Boy banner since it acquired the Ontario-based grocer for $800 million in 2018. With Empire behind it, Farm Boy has better access to premium sites all around the Greater Toronto Area and in the downtown core.

Over the last three years, Farm Boy has opened stores in St. Catharines, Ottawa, Newmarket, Oakville and downtown Toronto, and it will continue to grow with the opening of two more locations by the end of the year.
