If price were not a factor, I would do most of my shopping at the Pandora Save-on-Foods location.

Pandora is well laid out and provides many (and better) food options other SOF locations don't. Hopefully for the Sooke Corners residents that is typical of a 'new' SOF model.....

I don't like the SOF by Costco just because their parking lot sucks.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

The one near Costco has an expanded deli section like the downtown one, I think.

Know it all.

That said when I occasionally dropped and picked up Mrs ASE from a now-ex employer at their downtown office, one day last summer we decided to try the Pandora St location - wow. Totally different (and far superior) experience to the run of the mill SOF. Wonder if this new location on Sooke Rd will follow the Pandora template in terms of offering up superior and more interesting speciality food/deli/seafood quality and selection....?


The store is going to be over 40,000 sq ft and from my peaking in the windows, it's definitely a new format store.

BTW... We won our RTB arbitration against Onni. Even got punitive damages.

Things have quited down with the completion of Save-On finally. Wow eight months have gone by since move in.

You haven't peaked yet. You're a VV forumer, always striving for new heights.

Have you heard about his new New job?

Yeah we're connected on LinkedIn and I saw his recent post announcing the move - ironic, depending how the contract situation works out we'd be likely working with him again in some capacity. Definitely a very smart hire by the new employer. His knowledge of the client and the operational business support policies and processes will be invaluable.
