T & T Supermarket Celebrates Their 2nd Edmonton Location

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 2, 2009) - Despite the current economic climate, Canada's largest Asian supermarket chain is expanding once again - today they opened their second store in Edmonton, their 17th across the country.

"It's extremely exciting for us to open our new store in Edmonton considering the current economy," said Cindy Lee, CEO of T & T Supermarket Inc. "We're not only here to expand and help revitalize North Town Centre, but also continue to encourage communities to diversify and evolve." Not only will the new store draw more shoppers to North Town Centre, but it will provide new jobs for community members.

While T & T has been a household name among many ethnic Canadians for quite some time, appealing to Chinese customers and other members of the Asian community, the store is beginning to gain recognition and popularity with non-Asian Canadians. The North Town Centre location features T & T's signature delicacies including the award-winning fresh seafood department, fresh bakery, Gourmet hot deli and an extensive array of Asian grocery items found only at T & T. Much more than your average grocery store, T & T Supermarket is a cultural hub that promotes diversity every day - by bringing a taste of Asia into communities across Canada.

The Grand Opening festivities for the newest store featured traditional bright and bold lion dances, speeches from community leaders including David Xiao, MLA and Councillor Kim Krushell, a ceremonial ribbon cutting, and most importantly, the opportunity to experience the thrilling flavours of Asia. The store officially opened to the public at 10:00am featuring grand opening promotions that are based on the Chinese lucky number eight. For the grand opening weekend, shoppers will receive a special ceramic bowl set or a clay cooking pot when they spend $68 or $88 respectively.
