MONTRÉAL, Jan. 21, 2022 /CNW/ - Putting an end to a two-month suspense which became viral, T&T Supermarkets announced today that the very first T&T store in Quebec will be located in the borough of Saint-Laurent, at 300 Sainte-Croix Avenue. This brand new T&T store, at the size of more than 6,500 square meter, will become the chain's largest store in the country and will create more than 300 jobs locally. The grand opening is schedule to commence by the end of this year 2022.
"Since we announced our plans, honestly it has been so uplifting to hear all the excited shoutouts. I want to thank all the customers who reached out to us to extend a warm invitation, and who gave helpful suggestions on where we should locate our new store. This customer feedback gave us confidence that we would attract customers from all around the city, so it is important that we have great highway access. Selecting this particular building also meant that we could give customers in the Greater Montreal area the best T&T shopping experience we know how to offer. 300 Sainte Croix, will not only be the biggest Asian supermarket in Montreal, it will be the biggest T&T Supermarket in all of Canada." said Tina Lee, CEO, T&T Supermarkets. "Customers that live in Montreal who can't wait to try T&T products, don't have to wait. We already service Quebec with our online ordering platform* and since launching the site, Quebec has been one of our top mail delivery destinations. Download the APP and non-perishable Asian groceries and gifts can be delivered to your home via Canada Post", continues Tina Lee.
Quebec's first T&T Supermarket will be located in a former Loblaws store, just North of Highway 40 and close to Highway 15 and Highway Décarie. The store was expected to open earlier in 2022, but the business wanted to extend its commitment to the vaccination clinic currently set up in the location in order to support the vaccination effort.
T&T's recruitment efforts are already underway for Store Department Heads, Store Assistant Department Heads and Store Department Supervisors, who live in Montreal and speak French. Training will be conducted in Ottawa, the closest store to Montreal. There will be over 300 front line positions that will be posted closer to the opening date
