PriceSmart converts to Save-On-Foods
The Overwaitea Food Group (OFG) has set plans in motion to convert 11 of its PriceSmart Foods stores to the Save-On-Foods banner by Friday (Feb. 14). The Langley City PriceSmart Foods is among those 11 to be converted.
“With the overwhelming support of team members in these stores, we’re excited about this ambitious plan to deliver what customers have been asking for in these locations,” said Darrell Jones, president. “With this change, we’re able to continue to offer customers all the same low prices they are used to, plus more selection, more specials, and More Rewards,” he added.
With this move, OFG continues to grow and strengthen its Save-On-Foods banner. At the same time, the company will re-focus their PriceSmart Foods brand in Richmond, Grandview, King Edward, Fleetwood and Coquitlam.
“Our number one focus is making sure that we’re meeting the needs of customers in all the communities that we serve and with our multi-banner format, we’re able to tailor the services and products that we provide to what best suits each neighbourhood,” said Jones.
Stores converting to Save-On-Foods will be:
Surrey (Cloverdale, Clayton & King George), Burnaby (Marine Way and Cameron), North Vancouver (Capilano), Chilliwack, Langley, White Rock, Abbotsford (Clearbrook) and Fort St. John.
OFG operates a total of 129 stores in Western Canada. The company has 14,000 employees, serves over 80 communities with six store formats - Save-On-Foods, Overwaitea Foods, PriceSmart Foods, Cooper’s Foods, Urban Fare and Bulkley Valley Wholesale.
