Sobeys-owned FreshCo has opened two stores in Richmond, B.C. The two new locations are the first of a planned total of ten new FreshCo locations in the province. The stores are being opened in former Safeway stores that were closed last summer, reports Richmond News.
The two new locations are in Richmond’s Blundell and Broadmoor shopping centres. At the Broadmoor opening, store owner Scott Marshall presented the Richmond Food Bank with a $5000 donation. A lion dance was part of the festivities.
Sobeys plans to open 10 former Safeway locations in B.C. as FreshCo stores.
