T&T Supermarkets unveil the location of their first store in Quebec
After two months of reflection, the Canadian ethnic grocer T&T Supermarkets has revealed that its first store in Quebec will be located in the Montreal borough of Saint-Laurent, at 300, avenue Sainte-Croix. Requiring a multi-million dollar investment, the new T&T store, covering nearly 70,000 square feet, will become the chain’s largest store in Canada.
T&T offers customers a unique selection of Asian products, including a wide variety of fresh produce, meat, seafood, groceries, baked breads, ready meals and the popular collection of T&T private labels. The Asian supermarket chain already operates 29 stores in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
The first T&T in Quebec will be located in a former Loblaws store, just north of Autoroute 40 and close to Autoroute 15 and Autoroute Décarie. The store was scheduled to open earlier in 2022, but the company wanted to extend its commitment to the vaccination clinic currently located at the site to support the COVID-19 vaccination effort.
“Since we announced our plans, honestly, it’s been so uplifting to hear all the enthusiastic cries,” said Tina Lee, CEO of Richmond, BC-based T&T. “I would like to thank all of the customers who have reached out to extend a warm invitation to us and who have given us helpful suggestions on where to locate our new store. This customer feedback has given us confidence that we will attract customers. from all over town, so it’s important that we have good freeway access.Selecting this particular building also meant that we could offer customers in the greater Montreal area the best T&T shopping experience we know of. 300 Sainte Croix will not only be the largest Asian supermarket in Montreal, it will be the largest T&T supermarket in all of Canada.”
The Quebec store will create more than 300 jobs. T&T’s recruiting efforts are already underway for Store Department Managers, Assistant Store Department Managers and Store Department Supervisors who live in Montreal and speak French. The training will take place in Ottawa, Ontario, the store closest to Montreal. Interested candidates should apply to [email protected].
