Loblaw Freshmart

Operators of two Freshmart stores in northern Ontario hope to open a new Freshmart in South River, near North Bay, in a Foodland store location that is scheduled to close later this month.

The Foodland building is already owned by the Freshmart store operators, who are waiting for a “conditional go-ahead” to be finalized.

They say they will need $1 million worth of investment in refrigeration, shelving, stock and computer systems to equip the new store. They also want to be sure the local community supports their plans, and are hoping the community can chip in with $150,000 to help get work underway.
