SuperValu (Canada)


SuperValu (Canada)

Super Valu is a chain of franchised and associated grocery stores in Canada that operates primarily in the western part of the country. In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, many Super Valu stores were created from former Loblaws stores. Loblaw Companies Limited (through its Westfair Foods division) supplies Super Valu stores and owns the Super Valu name.

In the mid-1970s, a larger version of Super Valu was created. Dubbed the Real Canadian Superstore, these warehouse-sized grocery stores were closer to department stores in scope. By the mid-1990s, only a handful of smaller Super Valu stores remained (primarily in British Columbia) as most had either been rebranded as "Extra Foods" or expanded into Real Canadian Superstore outlets (or the related Real Canadian Wholesale Club).

Atlantic SuperValu

Many new SuperValu locations appeared in the Maritime provinces in the early 1990s, operated by Atlantic Wholesalers, a subsidiary of Loblaw Companies Limited. Some stores were rebrandings of other banners, including SaveEasy and Village Food Stores, while others were completely new. These stores operated under the name Atlantic SuperValu. A small number of these stores are still in operation although they are gradually being replaced by the larger "Atlantic Superstore".
