Your Local M&M Meat Shop Store Will Soon Be Changing

If you shop at your local M&M Meat Shops store, watch for some changes coming in the next few months. After the sale of the chain in 2014 and subsequent closing of 100 stores, the new owners are ready to make some changes to the existing and new stores.

They will be rebranding the stores to M&M Food Markets, introducing 100 new products and making changes to put an emphasis on their eOrder system where you pre-order online and pickup instore.  Since my local M&M Meat Shops is always out of stock on sale items, it is great to pre-order and know that if I make the trip there, I can actually buy the sale items.

So watch for sales and promotions over the coming months as they sell off products in the older packaging and promote the new chain name to customers.

    I can only see the new format working if there are two staff on duty. Usually the store has one employee and how will s/he have time to accept stock and count it, shelve it and also get e-orders packed? Maybe the store will only be open after 12pm to the public for order pickups if only one staff is on duty to deal with incoming stock in the mornings and dash around to deal with e-orders afterwards.
    The basic problem with M&M’s existing format is that most items are behind the staff counter (like the old LCBO format where customers filled an order form and gave it to staff to get the actual products). Customers still want to read the packaging and compare products.

      I believe that is part of the plan. New stores in Ontario have been renovated to remove the counter and make it a self-serve style. Customers can open the freezer doors and read packaging. Staff are there to help make meal suggestions

        Yes, the newer one I have shopped at is more self serve, there is still some stuff behind the counter, but not nearly as much (he said he tries to keep the area behind the cash more for easy restocking on items that are advertised or selling well)

    • FallenPixels says:

      Ciel, they have had eOrder for a while, just it wasn’t particularly user friendly or well advertised so most people didn’t use it. I only knew about it when a customer in front of me picked up her order one day

    • agarla says:

      Yes, eOrder pick up is only available starting from 11:30am for me.

    I stopped shopping at M&M when they started sending me correspondence in French only. I asked for English, but that was not respected. If bilingual communication is initiated, then I might return.

    My aged parents were big fans of M&M, for the quality and because their local franchisee in Kitchener-Waterloo would shop and deliver their order (over $40, and we know how easy it is to hit that limit). They used to have Seniors Days every Tuesday too; might still?
