Menkes Developments Ltd. has announced that Coppa's Fresh Market and Harbour Eats by Mercatino will become anchor retailers at One York Street in Toronto's rapidly expanding South Core district. Coppa’s new store is located a short walk from both Longo’s in Maple Leaf Square and Sobeys in Queen’s Quay Terminal.
Coppa's Fresh Market is a family-owned and operated grocery store chain with four locations in the Greater Toronto Area. This will be Coppa's first store in downtown Toronto. "We will provide a unique concept, tailored to the demands of young, urban professionals living and working downtown," said Coppa's president, John Louie Coppa.
Mercatino operates five locations in Calgary. "One York is a flagship location for Mercatino, and fitting to make a real statement for our expansion to the Toronto market," said Amit Vadan, president of Mercatino. "Each of Mercatino's locations feature unique food stations that are enriched with an incredible variety of high quality, wholesome and natural ingredients that are delivered fresh daily, which are then combined together by our chefs to produce an exceptional and very flavourful experience."
Harbour Eats by Mercatino is scheduled to open its food hall this fall on the fourth floor of the complex, with a terrace overlooking a new city park and Lake Ontario. Coppa's is scheduled to open in early 2018 on the second floor of the retail podium.
