A NEW FOOD STORE IS COMING TO THE TUXEDO NEIGHBOURHOOD! (Red River Co-op Press Release)
February 5, 2020
We are thrilled to announce that we will be building a food store to serve members and customers in the Tuxedo neighbourhood. Construction will begin June 2020 at Seasons, a 100-acre mixed-use retail and residential project featuring Outlet Collection Winnipeg. A grand opening of the 35,000 square foot food store located west of Outlet Collection Winnipeg is being planned for the summer of 2021.
“We are excited to bring the high-quality offerings we have at our other food stores in the city to Seasons to serve the growing communities in the area,” said Doug Wiebe, CEO of Red River Co-op. “We will have a large selection of over 600 locally made products including fresh produce and meats, a butcher counter, bakery with scratch-made baking, health and wellness section, pharmacy and exceptional customer service that Red River Co-op is known for.”
Red River Co-op members earn equity on purchases made at Red River Co-op food stores. In 2019, members earned 2% back on their groceries and 5% on the full price of their pharmacy prescriptions.
“Today’s exciting announcement of Red River Co-op joining our Seasons project represents one of the final steps in realizing our vision for Seasons being a true world class mixed-use development in Winnipeg,” said Blair Forster, President, Forster Harvard Development Corp. “Everything from high-end fashion, luxury auto, hotel, office, medical, fitness, fast-casual and dine-in restaurants, and a variety of residential options, together with a full service Co-op grocery store can all be found at one integrated master planned site.”
This new build is in addition to an active project underway in St. Norbert. A Red River Co-op Food Store is currently under construction and set to open this winter.
