T&T Supermarket to Open 31,000 Square Feet New Store in Downtown Toronto, Canada
From：Taiwan Trade Center, Toronto
T&T Supermarket, the largest Asian supermarket chain in Canada, will be opening a new store in the heart of Toronto in the spring of 2025.
The grocery retailer said the location is close to local landmarks such as Yonge and Dundas Square, the CF Toronto Eaton Centre, and Toronto Metropolitan University.
Following the success of its College & Spadina location, T&T said it recognized the need for another conveniently located store in the heart of downtown Toronto.
“We’ve seen such overwhelming demand at our College and Spadina location, we knew the city was ready for more. When deciding on the location of the new store, we knew a large portion of our delivery orders were going to the Yonge and Dundas area, so it was a natural choice,” said Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarket.
The new location will be 31,000 square feet and part of the Panda Condos, a project by Lifetime Development which is located on the site of the former World’s Biggest Bookstore. T&T Supermarket said the new location at 20 Edward Street comes on the heels of recent store addition announcements in Kanata, Ottawa, Brossard, Quebec, and Bellevue, Washington in the US. After their Fairview Mall location, the new store will be the second T&T to feature a street food concept. In addition to the usual offerings, it will provide a selection of easy and convenient foods such as Chinese-style crepes, Taiwanese-style stuffed rice rolls, and popcorn chicken.
Presently, T&T Supermarket is the largest Asian supermarket chain in Canada, operating 33 stores in 4 provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario. T&T stores offer customers a vast selection of Asian products, including a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, meats, seafood, groceries, fresh bread baked daily, ready-to-eat meals, and popular T&T private label products. T&T Supermarkets was founded in Vancouver in 1993 with offices in Toronto and is now led by second-generation successor and CEO, Tina Lee. In 2009, T&T Supermarkets was acquired by Loblaw Companies Limited, which currently operates more than 2,400 stores in Canada, with more than 190,000 full- and part-time employees.
