Farm Boy took the next step in its ambitious
Toronto expansion plan Thursday with the opening of a store in the heart
of Canada's biggest city.
The 20,000-sq.-ft store in Toronto's east end includes many of the
hallmarks associated with Farm Boy, most notably a large offering of
prepared foods and fresh salads from a 36-ft. hot and salad bar.
Expansion into the Greater Toronto Area has been on the agenda for Farm Boy for some time, but when it was acquired by Sobeys' parent Empire last September,
executives made it clear those plans could pick up speed, with
the substantial buying power and logistical support of the much
larger Empire behind it.
