Overwaitea Food Group is in expansion mode and plans to add 40 stores in Western Canada over the next five to seven years, according to president Darrell Jones.
Speaking to Kamloops This Week following a recent gathering of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, Jones said Overwaitea’s business in major centres is strong, even though when times get tough, people look to cut costs.
Well established in B.C. and Alberta, Overwaitea – which operates Cooper’s Foods, Save-On Foods and PriceSmart Foods as well as Overwaitea-branded stores – is expanding this year into Saskatchewan and Winnipeg. The corporation is also introducing e-commerce delivery service and expanding its hot food offering.
