Metro to open new store in Ottawa


Metro is back in Lincoln Heights as it will open on Thursday, October 28 at its new location—2525 Carling Ave, Ottawa. It represents a major investment by Metro, adding 30 employees to the headcount.

The new store is over 40,000 square feet and is Metro’s second brand new location in the Ottawa area since Kanata opened in August 2020. 

“This new store is a true reflection of Lincoln Heights. We are giving customers what they want including an expanded health and wellness offering, local products through our Locally Sourced program and a great selection of ready-made meals including stone-baked artisan pizza and fresh rotisserie chicken. It is important to us that our store integrates with the community, so we’ve tailored our product offering and store décor to the neighbourhood,” says Joe Fusco, Senior Vice President, Metro.

The store has officially been named Metro Lincoln Heights while the décor features photos of local landmarks like the Britannia Yacht Club to pay tribute to the surrounding community. To emphasize its commitment to playing an active role in the communities in which it operates, Metro will present $2,500 to the Britannia Woods Food Pantry, a partner of the Ottawa Food Bank and Feed Ontario, to help support those directly in the community.
