Farm Boy’s 16th location in Ottawa and 39th location in Ontario
Ottawa, ON (May 7th, 2021) – Ontario’s fastest-growing local fresh food retailer, Farm Boy, announced today it will be opening its 39th fresh market location on May 17th, 2021 in Ottawa.
“We’ve received so much support from our Ottawa shoppers over the years – we’re thrilled to share that we are opening another location to better serve an area that holds some of our longest-standing customers,” said Jean-Louis Bellemare, President and General Manager, Farm Boy. “Those visiting our new Greenbank location can expect the same exceptional farm fresh shopping experience that many in the Ottawa area have come to know and love, with a few additional upgrades we’ve recently tested. The new Greenbank location will also be Farm Boy’s first store to open without single-use plastic grocery bags.”
Farm Boy has been taking steps to better care for the environment by reducing other wasteful single-use plastics such as cutlery, straws, and some food containers. The Farm Boy team is working to phase out single-use plastic grocery bags from all stores, starting on June 1st. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own reusable shopping bags, which cashiers will happily help pack, or purchase from Farm Boy’s wide selection of reusable and eco-friendly options in-store.
Located at 1581 Greenbank Road in Barrhaven, the 35,064 sq. ft. location will employ 135 people in the community. In line with the company’s “It’s all about the food” ethos, the new store will feature fresh grilling and pizza stations, as well as full-service salad and hot bars, catering to customers’ varying lifestyles and shopping needs.
