A hole left by the closure of a Langley City grocery store last August could soon be filled.

The No Frills chain of discount supermarkets is reportedly set to open this spring in the Langley Mall space vacated five months ago by IGA.

Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender confirmed that a lease has been signed, signage is set to go up soon and the store could open as early as this April.

After the only supermarket within walking distance of many downtown Langley City apartment and condominium complexes — occupied largely by senior citizens — closed last summer, a free shuttle bus service was introduced to ferry customers to the PriceSmart on Fraser Highway each week.

Co-sponsored by PriceSmart and the Langley Senior Resources Centre, the bus makes four runs every Friday, and according to its volunteer driver and “navigator,” the service has been very well received.

Vic Rurka and Leo Sabot said that, on average, 45 seniors use the service each week. The two men also praised the staff and management of the PriceSmart store for ensuring the seniors’ weekly shopping trips have run as seamlessly as possible.
