New store highlights local foods, fresh products and ready-to-eat meals
Metro recently expanded its footprint with a new Metro Plus store in Prévost, Que. It’s owned by brothers Frédéric and Martin Thibeault and is the Thibeault family’s fifth Metro store in the Laurentian region.
At more than 31,000 sq. ft., the store is the anchor at a new commercial complex developed by the Thibeault family, who are known to be an integral part of the commercial landscape in the region since 1981.
“For the past 40 years, the Thibeault family has made it a point to contribute to the economic vitality of the communities it serves while providing the best service possible,” said Frédéric and Martin Thibeault, in a press release. “The new store will deliver the same freshness, product diversity and high-quality services that the Metro Plus Thibeault stores have built their reputation on for decades.”
The new store has a big focus on fresh. In the “Fresh to Go” section, in-store chefs prepare more than 100 ready-to-eat meals made with fresh ingredients. The Aki Sushi counter offers a selection of high-end sushi, while customers can also purchase pizzas that are prepared and baked on site.
In the butcher’s department, staff prepare cuts to order, suggest products, and offer tips on how to prepare and cook meats. For customers with special dietary needs and for those looking for the latest food trends, the store features a wide variety of local, international, gluten-free and organic products, many of which are found in the Organic & Well-being Market.
The new Metro Plus is also well-stocked on the beer and wine front. There are more than 1,400 varieties of microbrewery beers, as well as a selection of Quebec-made wines.
The store even caters to eco-conscious drivers: there are four charging stations in the parking lot for electric and hybrid vehicles.
