Canadian Fresh Food Retailer Plans Two New Locations This Year

OTTAWA, Ont. -- Farm Boy, Inc., based here, said Friday that it would open two new stores in the Ottawa area in 2006. The first is a 22,000-square-foot store in Barrhaven, scheduled to open in March. The second location, which will be at the Blue Heron Mall, will be renovated and expanded to 16,000 square feet.

The two new locations will bring Farm Boy's total number of stores to nine in eastern Ontario, eight in the Ottawa area and one in Cornwall. The company said it would hold a career fair this week to seek employees for the Barrhaven store.

Incorporated in 1981, Farm Boy offers produce, meat, bakery, deli, cheese, and prepared foods offerings, in addition to its own line of high-quality private label products.
