Loblaws to Open 50 New Stores and Renovate 150 Existing Stores

Loblaws Canada made a big announcement on Thursday afternoon that they would be adding 30 new stores and renovating 500* of their existing stores in 2017. The stores that will be renovated will include both grocery stores that fall under many of Loblaws banners, as well as Shoppers Drug Mart stores. The company is also excited to announce that this expansion will add 10,000 retail and construction jobs.

This announcement comes almost exactly a year after the company announced that they would be adding 50 stores and renovating 150 of their current stores.

They have yet to release where the new stores will be added or which stores are going to be renovated. The stores receiving renovations will be designed to accommodate for the inclusion of click and collect e-commerce (to keep up with e-commerce giants like Amazon), improved health and wellness services and the addition of fresh produce at select Shoppers Drug Marts.

The renovations and expansions are going to cost Loblaws $1.3 billion.

*A previous version to this story incorrectly listed the number of stores being added as 50 and the number of stores being renovated as 150.

    Loblaws said this exact same statement two years ago; nothing happened. I think it’s about giving people false hope to have low wage part-time work; which is cruel because both are cruel.
