After extensive renovations, Metro has reopened its Etobicoke store. The new store, located on Lloyd Manor Road, will remain open 24 hours, seven days a week.
The revamped store includes a Starbucks counter, organic meats and produce, fresh, sustainable seafood, made-to-order artisan pizza, an on-site sushi chef, fresh made-in-store salads, juices, cakes and pastries, catering and floral design services and health and wellness products.
“Our Fresh2Go counter has more readymade, convenient options for on-the-go customers," says Joe Fusco, senior vice president of Metro. "We’ve opened up our meat counter to showcase the butchers at work, who can offer expert advice; and we’ve improved our deli selection with local meats and fine cheese.”
As part of its multi-pronged community investment strategy, Metro will continue to give back to Etobicoke on a neighbourhood level, presenting three local school representatives with $1,000 grants as part of Metro’s Green Apple School Program. Every year, the program awards 500 $1,000 grants to schools across Ontario to fund healthy eating initiatives that encourage the increased consumption of fruits and vegetables among children and youth.
