The grocery chain market in Toronto is already insanely crowded, and it looks like competition is about to heat up even more as Popular Ottawa-based grocery chain Farm Boy Plans to Open 10 stores in the GTA.
BlogTO reports that Farm Boy, which is kind of like a cross between Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s has announced major expansion plans in the Toronto area. If you’ve never heard of Farm Boy, it rose to popularity by focusing on non-packaged foods. Boasting an incredible bakery, deli, and a vast selection of prepared foods and dairy.
The company positions itself as a “fresh food experience” shop rather than a grocery store. There are plans to open a store in Etobicoke in the “very” near future and industry insiders and BlogTO have reported that 10-12 stores will be coming throughout the GTA in the upcoming year.
This should create strong competition between top grocery players like Loblaw Inc, Longos and Whole Foods.
