T&T Supermarket, Canada's largest Asian grocery store chain, is making a long-awaited return to the city’s downtown.
After being forced to close its Cherry Street location in January of 2020, T&T is opening a 27,000 square-foot store at 301 College Street this September.
Founded in British Columbia in 1993 by Cindy and Jack Lee, T&T was purchased by Loblaw Companies Limited in 2009. The company currently has nearly 30 stores across Canada, in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario.
After the Cherry Street location was forced to close due to redevelopment of the Port Lands, the T&T team promised to search for a new Toronto location.
"While we've been able to continue to support our downtown customers through our online shopping, we've been looking for a new store location," said T&T CEO Tina Lee in a press release. "The new store location is perfect—in the heart of the city and within walking distance for so many of our customers. We can't wait to be able to serve Torontonians again in person."
The new store on College, just west of Spadina Avenue, will replace a location of Independent CityMarket, also owned by parent company Loblaw. The new space will carry the wide range of imported goods the store is known for—from coveted foods to personal care items — and will also feature an in-store bakery and to-go department.
If history is any indication, we can expect to find the store’s popular, house-made dumplings, barbecue, sushi, Peking duck, baked goods and more at the new site.
Expected to open this fall, the new store is currently accepting applications for close to 100 positions.
