A new grocery store has opened up in Capri Centre.
Your Independent Grocer has taken the place of Extra Foods, and previous store mananger Peter Boyd is the new owner.
“I’m very excited to be a part of the neighbourhood and to serve our customers,” says Boyd. “My team and I are committed to bringing fresh food, quality products and superior customer service in a one-stop grocery store.”
The store is still part of the Loblaw empire and will provide customers with quality food, great service and a local grocer with 30 years of experience.
The company said in a press release its Meals to Go department will feature From our Chefs, a line of ready-to-eat meals prepared from global-award-winning recipes, along with daily made pizzas, hot entrees, soup, sandwiches and salads. Fans of President Choice and no-name products will also find those items still on the shelves.
Customers of the Kelowna store will also enjoy an expanded natural value selection, an on-site juice bar and a full-service bakery and meat department.
The location also added 30 new positions in its transition from the previous grocery store tenant, bringing the total number of employees to 130.
“Boyd and his team look forward to contributing to the well-being of the Kelowna community,” the press release stated.
This store will continue to raise food and funds during its bi-annual food drive, benefiting the Kelowna Food Bank.
