I loved them back when they were an ugly-painted warehouse box store, loading up my discount no name products in my gigantic shopping carts. I have not had a product I disliked from their President's Choice line. Black label, oh yeah! Healthy Blue Menu- in my cart! Not to mention their in-store Guiding Stars marketing, love it! I have always loved the "spend $250 and get a $25 gift card" coupon because those years when I had babies, BOTH in diapers, that came in real handy. Every time I use my PC Plus card and it's time to redeem, I thank Galen Weston Jr. for saving me buckeroos. It's like getting free Joe Fresh clothes! Seriously Galen, you need to hire me!
I remember being so jealous of the Presidents Choice Pop Up last year, wishing we had some of that awesome here in Edmonton. So when I heard that tomorrow is the grand opening of the Loblaws CityMarket store in the Brewery District, I had to drive by on the way home just to have a sneak peek. I wasn't expecting the doors to be open but YES, YES, YES!
It's sooooo beautiful! The refrigerated wall of CHEESE! The Deli is HUGE with so much variety! When I hit the Patisserie, I thought I'd died and went to heaven. Died. Heaven. I may never bake again.
Galen! I like it! I like it a lot! No, I LOVE IT. My love affair continues. See you in the aisles!
