Loblaw’s City Market has officially set up shop in downtown Edmonton’s ICE District two years behind schedule.
The 22,000 sq. ft. location was first announced in 2019 with plans to open in the fall of 2020.
Located at 10324 103 Ave NW, the store joins other tenants such as Rogers Place, Stantec, JW Marriott, the Oilers Official Team Store and Grand Villa Casino, as well as a variety of restaurants and bars.
