As a Winnipegger, I’m always excited to see new businesses come to our city to flourish, and I know the Save-On-Foods launch in Winnipeg will be no exception.
It’s definitely not a secret that Save-On-Foods will be bringing fresh new competition to the Winnipeg grocery store scene. It’s been all over the news, and they are ramping up their visibility as the grand opening date (Saturday November 19th) nears. Oh, and they won’t be opening just one store that day, it will be all 3 locations, at the same time! Bridgwater Centre, St James Station and Northgate Shopping Centre (the flagship location) will all be ready for the Winnipeg masses in less than a week!
Even though they are new to Winnipeg, I’ve had numerous friends from Western Canada who now live in Winnipeg vouch for the quality and I think they just might be more excited than I am for Save-On-Foods to open!
I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the Northgate location last week, and you wouldn’t believe me if I just wrote about it so come on a lil journey with me, check out this video:
Ok, let’s get into the goods!
The Fresh Solutions section will have a weekly recipe demonstrated by a chef, every single week!
I love the size and diversity of products available in the Natural Choices section.
One of my favourite areas in the store is the Hot Meal/Kitchen area. Pick up a meal, and sit with your family in the large dining area. It’s truly not just about grocery shopping, it’s a destination market experience.
There are ample outlets on the tables and seating located in the Hot Meals dining area. Bring a laptop, charge your smartphone while you eat, perhaps for a lunch meeting. I didn’t capture it in the picture but there is a Starbucks Coffee to the right of this table as well!
Tim (Store Manager) and Ben (Regional Director) are so welcoming and excited to open the doors!
The Seafood area is unreal. Large tanks will house lobster, live tilapia and king crab – in addition to oysters, mussels and other fresh seafood.
DID YOU KNOW? One of the great features of the new Save-On-Foods Northgate location is the wide variety of International food options available?
From the Philippines, to Southeast Asia, to Mexico, to the Caribbean, to European food, the Save-On-Foods Northgate location has it all! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much varieties of Polish mustards (my fiancé will love it)!
The picture below is just the aisle of soya sauces!!! Seriously, there are that many?
Last but not least, there is a Sweet Shoppe area that I literally promised to live in. Honestly, they could just set up a cot for me in there! They have a ridiculous amount of fun, delectable creations. There are a gazillion types of fudge, chocolate covered liquorice, marshmallows, pretzels, various flavours of popcorn and candy apples that look so intricate you don’t want to eat them, you just want to look at them! Thanks to the folks at Save-On-Foods, I received my very own box of sweet treats to try.
DID YOU KNOW? PegCityLovely will be giving away Save-On-Foods gift cards with each upcoming post?
