Is Shoppers Drug Mart evolving into a foodie destination?Friday, September 26, 2014 > 10:14:11
In the wake of last year's blockbuster Loblaw–Shoppers Drug Mart deal, healthy, and fresh convenience foods have been making their way into select Shoppers locations.
Grocery Business recently visited a Shoppers store in downtown Toronto and found that the location has become a foodie destination for the after-work crowd, particularly the thousands of Millennials who live in the city core.
Appealing to Millennials’ love of exotic flavours, Shoppers has introduced fresh salads and soups under the store brand “From Our Chefs." The ready-made dishes come in clean, spare containers with intriguing names such as Quinoa Chili Machu Picchu, and Phuket Carrot and Coconut Soup, with price points in the $3-$4 range.
Also spotted was the popular line of Blue Goose fresh chicken, and an eye-catching Ace Bakery end-aisle display.
