A Metro Plus store in Levis, Quebec, reopened last week after major updates that the retailer called “the banner’s latest store concept.” The $8-million renovation included expanding the store’s footprint by nearly 10,000 square feet.
Here, franchise owner Éric Gariépy (center, with scissors) and Denis Brisebois, VP, retail operations, Metro Banner, East (far right) officially reopen the store alongside local officials.
Plenty of produce
The expanded produce department includes a counter with smoothies and fruit cut in-store.
The store also offers fresh juices.
The redesigned bakery stocks the largest selection of products in grocery stores from Quebec artisanal bakery Premiere Moisson.
Fresh bread and more
Metro Plus’s Premiere Moisson products include breads, Viennese and other pastries, chocolates, jams, marinades, terrines, sauces, quiches and pates.
Celebrating the region
The store calls out local products from the province.
Going all out
“The tastes and needs of Quebecers when it comes to food are evolving more and more. Here, our customers will be able to find everything they want and have access to fresh, distinctive, high quality products at good prices. We have gone all out to exceed our customers’ expectations,” Éric Gariépy, the store’s franchisee, said in a press release.
More than a facelift
The remodeled store also features a second-floor outdoor terrace and bistro area, a fish smokehouse, a bulk section with candies and nuts, and a large selection of beers from local microbreweries.
