The new location features wide aisles and an expansive selection of food oﬀerings. It also includes a large variety of specialty departments, such as an on-site bakery, fresh meat, extensive produce area, rotisserie chicken section, optical centre – including an on-site independent optometrist – a hearing aid centre, photo centre, five tire centre bays, large food court, gas station with 24 pumps, propane station and a full-service pharmacy.
