Food City (Canada)

Food City (Canada)

Food City or Food Town were Canadian supermarkets operated by the Toronto-based Oshawa Group. The stores were often paired with department store chain Towers.

A typical Food City store had:

* Meats/Deli
* Produce
* Frozen goods
* Canned goods

The stores employed a basket system at the checkout that is loaded by staff at a drive-thru.

Smaller stores were re-branded as Food Town; the Food City name disappeared after the sale of the parent company to Sobey's in 1998. Many of the locations became Price Chopper (Canada) stores.
