After three months of renovations, Tottenham Foodland held a grand re-opening on Thursday, November 12, to celebrate the store’s refreshed and re-designed appearance.

Local dignitaries, as well as people from Sobeys head office, attended the morning event to congratulate store owner, Joanne Leduc, and her staff on all the hard work and dedication in creating the new design.

The store received a make-over both inside and on the exterior of the building.

Outside, the parking lot was re-paved and the facade of the building was updated with a new frontage including a large clock that faces the parking lot.

Inside, the store changed the layout, added new signage and added to the existing deli and bakery department. The deli features a wider assortment of prepared food available for customers.

The Foodland store originally opened in 2010 at it’s Queen St. location in Tottenham.

“Sobeys made the decision to renovate our store,” explained store manager Colleen Hunt. “We started the renovations in August and finished this month.”

Sobeys, the corporation that owns the Foodland brand, employs around 130,000 people across the country.

In addition to cosmetic changes, the store created a whole new pharmacy.

“We have a new sushi bar, a new pharmacy, and new high efficiency refrigeration,” said Ms. Leduc. “We did the outside with all new signage.”

The event was celebrated with a ribbon cutting to officially open the new renovated store.
