Lee said the store aims to cater to both residents and students.
“University students, with their busy schedules and often on their own for the first time, may not have the time or the knowhow to cook for themselves,” she said. “In addition to ready-to-eat meals, fresh fruits and vegetables, and, of course, late-night study snacks, we’re happy to offer students in the area some familiar flavours from home.”
The news comes on the heels of recent T&T store announcements in Ottawa, Brossard, Que., and Bellevue, Washington.
After their Fairview Mall location, the Edward Street store will be the second T&T to feature a street food concept. In addition to the usual offerings, it will provide a selection of foods such as Chinese-style crepes, Taiwanese-style stuffed rice rolls and popcorn chicken.
