New Toronto location to create more than 150 jobs, marking the latest stage in landmark shopping centre's redevelopment
TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2021 /CNW/ - T&T Supermarkets and Cadillac Fairview (CF) are pleased to announce T&T's newest location at CF Fairview Mall in Toronto, opening in winter 2022. The new store will occupy over 36,000 SF of the former Sears space on the ground level, features direct TTC access and can be accessed via the mall's new corridor.
Reflecting consumer research which revealed a strong preference for an ethnic grocery store, T&T will offer the local community served by CF Fairview Mall a wide variety of Asian specialty products including fresh produce, meat, seafood, grocery items, and its own signature kitchen and bakery creations.
"T&T Supermarkets is at the forefront of Asian food innovation ? always sourcing new and trendy items, as well as ensuring we stock the traditional favorites that are important to the communities we serve," said Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarkets. "We're excited to become a part of the local community and look forward to bringing new business to the area ? our stores are destinations, attracting customers from all over the region."
The addition of a major grocery brand at CF Fairview Mall stems from the 2019 strategic vision of partners CF and TD Asset Management Inc. to repurpose the centre's department store space, improve pedestrian access to the nearby Don Mills subway station, and introduce new retail brands and food and dining offerings to reinforce the leadership position of one of Canada's best-performing shopping centres. The redesign and transformation to CF Fairview Mall, totaling some 200,000 square feet, opened in Fall 2020 with new store openings continuing through 2022.
"T&T is a highly popular, best-in-class grocery brand and we're delighted to partner with them and open a store location at CF Fairview Mall as the premier food destination for miles around," said Michael Peiser, Director, Development, Cadillac Fairview. "The addition of T&T Supermarket, with its unique brand positioning, dramatically reflects how CF Fairview supports the needs of this growing and dynamic local community."
The CF Fairview Mall location will also offer T&T Supermarkets customers the convenience of online ordering for both home delivery and click and collect at www.tntsupermarket.com and T&T mobile App. Customers who do not live close to a T&T Supermarket can also shop online for an assortment of T&T products for mail delivery.
T&T Supermarkets operates 29 stores across Canada and has been steadily expanding their footprint despite the pandemic. Recent store openings including Vancouver East, South Calgary, Toronto Downtown, and Langley BC.
With over 190 retailers and dining options, CF Fairview Mall has been a local landmark for over 50 years. Since opening its doors in 1970, the property has been a natural hub for community members to gather and share experiences, including shoppers, commuters and partners alike.
