Save-On-Foods Grand Reopening in Fort McMurray a Huge Success!

We congratulate Save-On-Foods as they officially celebrated the grand reopening of the Save-On-Foods in Downtown Fort McMurray in August 2017!

The store was shut down in May 2016 when a massive wildfire threatened the city of Fort Mac and forced all 88,000 of its residents out of town. A loss of power, prolonged closure, and fire suppression efforts meant Save-On-Foods had to do some work to get the store operational again – and they decided to take that opportunity to come back better than ever.

Team members worked hard to renovate the store from top to bottom, and today, it’s a beautifully renovated Save-On-Foods with some of our best offerings.

Save-On customers will find updates in every department; a fresh sushi counter; and an expanded bakery, with treats for the whole family.

Save-On-Foods Downtown Fort McMurray team were welcomed back to their store, and thanked for their commitment and continued service during the closure, and thanks to store manager Jeff Woods and the folks at the Langley office for all they did to get this store where it is today. Congratulations on a great grand reopening weekend!

After many months of construction the Vancouver Island Regional Library, Wellington Branch, opened their doors to the public at Country Club Centre on Tuesday.  This new space replaces the old Wellington Branch, which was previously located behind Country Club on Barons Rd.  The space is roughly around the same size as the old Wellington Branch but offers an upgraded contemporary design with many new features such as lower stacked shelves, brand new computers, lounges, study areas, a children’s section and much more.   Although they opened their doors on Tuesday, VIRL will have their grand opening celebrations on Saturday, July 8 where customers will enjoy speeches, local entertainment and tours.
