Food Basics celebrated the opening of a new store in Pickering, Ontario at the end of February.
The 18,000 square foot store features organic produce, OLG lottery sales and a Western Union location, and also sells propane. The brand’s Irresistibles and Selection economy product ranges are also available.
At the February 28 opening ceremony, Food Basics presented a cheque to Pickering’s St Paul’s on-the-Hill Community Food Bank.
The store will create 80 new jobs in the local community, store manager Jesse Grimes said.
