Save-On-Foods opened a 25,000-sq.-ft. store in Kimberley, B.C. on Feb. 4, next to its former home on Warren Avenue.
The store has a refreshed modern look as well as a “wide variety of Save-On-Foods’ freshest innovations,” according to a press release.
These innovations include a grab ‘n go kitchen with ready to eat meal options, sandwiches, homestyle fried chicken and wing bar; a bakery with house-made treats, a customer cake program and freshly baked bread; and a meat and seafood department stocked with fresh sausages, kabobs, marinated chicken breasts and Ocean wise seafood.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be investing in this brand-new store for our customers in Kimberley, filled with innovative and exciting offerings,” Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones said in a press release.
“I started my career almost 45 years ago as a bag boy in Cranbrook only a short drive away and have a special appreciation for our small-town communities in B.C. We have been part of this Kootenay community for more than 60 years and we can’t wait to go the extra mile for 60 more,” he added.
Save-On-Foods is currently operating 181 stores in Western Canada, 37 of which opened in the last five years.
