“We’ve looked closely at the grocery needs of our customers in these two neighbourhoods and we are thrilled to introduce them to our FreshCo banner,” said Mike Venton, general manager of discount at Sobeys Inc. in a news release. “At FreshCo, we believe that providing healthy, nourishing food for a family doesn’t need to break the bank.

Our team is focused on always putting our customers first—without sacrificing quality or shopping experience.”

Construction on the two Safeway locations is scheduled to begin on October 13, but Sobeys said both the pharmacies and the gas bar at the Jefferson location will remain open.
