Montreal, August 15, 2013 – Les 5 Saisons, the well known gourmet food emporium located at 1280 Greene Avenue, finally re-opened its doors this morning. Its loyal clientele, which has waited two years to once again enjoy this Westmount fixture, can expect a totally re-invented concept. The store closed on May 20, 2011, to make way for the construction of ‘Le 1250 Avenue Greene’ condominium building. Les 5 Saisons store is on the ground floor of that building and is sure to impress even the finest connoisseurs.
Occupying some 10,000 square feet, 5 Saisons required an investment of 6.7 million dollars. Its Director, Jean-François Dugal, will rely on a team of no fewer than 85 employees to ensure outstanding service in all departments. The old store had 36 employees.
« We are delighted to finally be able to show the results of several months of work. There is no other store like it in Quebec, with a distinctive and sought-after upscale offering, and we are anxious to see our customers’ reaction » said Christian Bourbonnière, Senior Vice-President, Quebec Division, Metro Inc.
