The other new FreshCo store in Richmond will also have its grand opening on Thursday, May 16.
The Sobeys-owned company – which closed its Safeway locations in Richmond last summer – will open both the Blundell and Broadmoor shopping centre stores at 8 a.m. that day.
They will be the first two FreshCo stores in Metro Vancouver.
According to FreshCo’s head office, customers can expect “fantastic opening deals and exciting giveaways.”
The company recently announced the opening date for its Broadmoor store, on No. 3 and Williams roads.
FreshCo’s two Richmond locations will be among 12 across Western Canada to open this spring.
Last month, FreshCo opened its first location in the region in Mission.
The Richmond News reported in April, 2018 how Safeway in Western Canada ran into financial problems since Sobeys purchased the well-known brand name supermarket.
