KIRKLAND, Quebec — Loblaw Cos. on Aug. 21 opened its second Provigo Le Marché store here — a sleekly designed flagship store measuring 82,000 square feet and featuring a “market-style layout.”
“With our second Provigo Le Marché store now open, we’re continuing to focus our mission of helping Québecers live life well by nourishing their joie de vivre,” said Pierre Dandoy, senior vice president, operations for Provigo, Provigo Le Marché and Loblaws Québec. “The store offers an expanded range of fresh products and gives center stage to a vast selection of local products, once again demonstrating the company's support of Québec and local growers and food processors.”
Prepared food offerings include smoked meat, a sushi bar, several varieties of pizzas from the popular Pizzédélic brand, and chef-prepared heat-and-eat meals.
The store also features an in-store dietitian and the Guiding Stars nutrition labeling program, which Loblaw recently rolled out to Quebec.
In addition to the Provigo Le Marché location recently opened in Sherbrooke, five new stores under this banner are scheduled to open in Magog, Saint-Bruno, Saint-Sauveur, Vaudreuil and Charlesbourg by the end of the year.
