Vancouver and BC’s largest natural and organic grocer Choices Market’s is set to reach 10 stores following the opening of a new store at Glenlyon Parkway at Marine way in Burnaby in July, its 9th store. The local retailer has a new store planned for Abbotsford later this year.

The July opening at Burnaby, east of Vancouver city, also accommodates the need for more space for its 20,000sqft production facility and a bulk foods warehouse, with a scaled back retail store at the front.

“We’ve simply outgrown our existing Commissary,” said Ishkandar Ahmed, CEO, Choices Markets. “This new space will allow our executive chef to let his creative juices flow and allow us to offer more new, exciting and unique offerings to our customers. This move will ultimately allow us an even greater variety of fresh products in all of our stores.”

A new Abbotsford store will open in September. “The Fraser Valley is home to some of the greatest artisan food producers that BC is proud to offer. At Choices Markets, we can’t wait to stock our shelves with even more of these local treasures as we open our tenth location in Abbotsford, BC this September! It will be located in the strip mall at 3033 Immel Street,” Choices Markets said.

Choices Markets opened its first location in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood 25 years ago. Since then, the company has grown into a chain of 9 stores in BC, all specializing in natural and organic foods and carrying a range of natural wellness products.
