Winfield, Vernon Cooper’s Foods expected to convert to Save-OnFoods next week

Kelowna, B.C., 2016-Mar-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Two Kelowna grocery stores have become Save-On-Foods after converting overnight from Cooper’s Foods.

The former Cooper’s Foods stores in Rutland and Glenmore, owned and operated by the Langley-based Overwaitea Food Group, officially opened as Save-On-Foods Friday, March 4 after all-night conversions with minimal interruption to customers.

Two more Cooper’s Foods stores in the Okanagan – one in Winfield and the other in Vernon – are expected to convert overnight and open as Save-On-Foods next Friday, March 11.

As Save-On-Foods, these stores will continue to deliver world-class service and a great selection of products with even better value, thanks to promotions and programs unique to Save-On-Foods including Darrell’s Deals, Talk about Fresh Solutions, and Talk about What’s New.

Friday was also a busy day for the Lakeshore Save-On-Foods, which officially opened its wine department, becoming the second grocery store in the Okanagan to sell B.C. VQA wine after the SaveOn-Foods in Orchard Plaza.

“We are thrilled to welcome two more Cooper’s Foods locations to the Save-On-Foods family, and know our customers in Kelowna feel the same because they’ve told us they want Save-On-Foods in their neighbourhoods,” said Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones. “Our stores have unbeatable value, the most innovative programs, and simply the best service around, and we can’t wait to share that with our friends and neighbours in Kelowna, Vernon and Winfield.”
