Urban Fare, Save-On-Foods' premium banner, is set to open its first location outside of British Columbia.
The new 26,869 square foot Urban Fare store, in Calgary’s Mount Royal neighbourhood, will open on April 26.
“Urban Fare is a food lover’s paradise – a destination where people can come and participate in the food experience,” says store manager Todd McMullen. “We are eager to provide Calgarians with more options when it comes to shopping and dining, and are proud to be offering a wide selection of premium local, natural, organic and first-to-market products that they might not be able to find anywhere else.”
The new locations will feature a charcuterie and wine bar, restaurant offerings with dine-in seating, a hot buffet and salad bar, poke bowl, Ocean Wise sushi and pizza stations and a full-service Starbucks.
It will offer a selection of fresh-baked artisan breads and desserts, sourced in part from local partner bakeries and pastry chefs, and will house an old-fashioned butcher shop experience at its fresh meat and seafood counter, where it will serve a variety of Ocean Wise products sourced from the West Coast. It will also stock hundreds of cheese varieties to complement the wines and local beers on tap at the wine bar.
