Hmm, I just looked it up and it's a 1km walk from my place.

How far will it be from The Wade though?  ;)

I think having SoF is great. It will be the first real grocery store downtown as you could not really do a big grocery shop at either Wellburns or MoY. That said I am wondering how they are going to deal with the security challenges that this location is going to pose versus their other stores. You might have to take out a loan to borrow a shopping cart...

 

The grocery carts will likely be only used inside the store and the wheels will lock up if you try to take it home.

Bur having worked at the Thrifty's in James Bay, our average sale per customer was $26, but our customer count was through the roof. Store like Hillside would have average sales over $100 per customer on weekends and $80 during the week. Much lower customer count though. It all levels out. I am sure Markets average is low as well as they most likely get alot of daily shoppers in comparison to weekly.

Right.  But in terms of store sales efficiency, I'm sure they'd still prefer larger orders.  Ie. if they could get James Bay up to $38, they'd love that.  Although having lots of daily shoppers might make inventory control actually a bit easier.

JImmy P donated $75M to St Paul's Hospital foundation today. He's definitely one reason I shop at Save On and not Costco or Wally World.

 

 

“Today, Jim Pattison has stepped forward to transform health care on a scale this country has never seen,” said Dick Vollet, president and CEO, St. Paul’s Foundation in a news release. “Jim Pattison’s gift will help us realize an exceptionally rare opportunity to build a major medical and research centre from the ground up, that will establish its place among the most highly regarded and recognized medical centres in North America.”

WELLBURN'S is making some efforts to take on its soon-to-be neighbour. To start, they are revamping the product layout within the store. Some new product lines will be introduced, some expanded and some dropped. A new customer service area is planned and perhaps most importantly, fresh paint is coming! Time will tell if this helps them stave off the competition.
