Farm Boy opened its 39th location on May 17 in Barrhaven, Ottawa, Ont.
The 35,064 sq ft location will employ 135 people and include fresh grilling and pizza stations, full-service salad and hot bars and fresh produce.
“We've received so much support from our Ottawa shoppers over the years – we’re thrilled to share that we are opening another location to better serve an area that holds some of our longest-standing customers,” says Jean-Louis Bellemare, president and general manager, Farm Boy. “Those visiting our new Greenbank location can expect the same exceptional farm fresh shopping experience that many in the Ottawa area have come to know and love, with a few additional upgrades we've recently tested. The new Greenbank location will also be Farm Boy’s first store to open without single-use plastic grocery bags."
Farm Boy is also phasing out single-use plastic grocery bags across all stores, effective June 1, 2021. Customers are encouraged to bring their own reusable bags or purchase eco-friendly bags in-store.
