Why people like to shop at FreshCo
Their spacious aisles and modern shopping setting make customers feel like they’re shopping in a market. Supporting Ontario farmers, the company is known for their produce department, garnished with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables from local growers and producers. Their fresh and frozen meats are also from Ontario farmers, as well as a variety of halal products, and international foods.
They have a selection of dairy goods to choose from including Canadian cheeses. They sell seafood, snacks, and, unlike any other grocery store, a deli without line ups. The bakery serves daily fresh bread, sandwiches, wraps, baked goods and cakes which are made in community bakeries.
In addition, they have a pharmacy opened 7 days a week, where customers can get prescription refills, blood pressure screening, free advice, plus a flu shot during flu season. Find out more about their services at www.freshco.ca
To cater to and to reflect Ontario’s multiculturalism and ethnic diversity, the company opened the first Chalo FreshCo store in Brampton, targeting Ontario’s South Asian diaspora by providing shoppers with a variety of South Asian products and imported goods. Chalo means “let’s go” in Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, and Urdu. The third Chalo FreshCo opened in Mississauga, and now, there are many more in the Greater Toronto Area.
