April 29, 2010 - A new Super C opens in Rivière-des-Prairies - An investment of over $2 million dollars

(Montreal, April 29, 2010) – Super C is pleased to introduce the chain's 69th store, located at 8115 Maurice-Duplessis Blvd. With a total surface area of over 30,000 sq. ft., it is celebrating the grand opening of its easy to navigate public market/warehouse-type store with hundreds of specials and products. This major project, which required an investment of over $2 million, created 100 jobs.

In total, the store boasts over 8,000 grocery products, including 1,600 Selection and Irresistibles private-label products. Super C stores stand out from the rest of the food industry because of their "market and warehouse" design, meaning wide aisles, easily accessible products and, most importantly, highly competitive prices. And customers appreciate the clean, simple look of the stores. Customers will also discover a meat counter with high-quality meats prepared by in-house butchers, aisles of frozen foods and groceries, a bakery section where fresh breads are baked daily, a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, and low prices all year long.

"We are proud to offer Rivière-des-Prairies residents a discount store where they can enjoy substantial savings on thousands of products," stated Jean-Guy Tremblay, Vice-president of Operations at Super C. "We are convinced that our customers will be impressed by the store and by the vast selection of low-cost, everyday grocery items."

The store manager, Rocco Potenza, and his team invite all residents of Rivière-des-Prairies and surrounding areas to visit the new Super C, a model for a new generation of stores.

Super C is a leader in the discount supermarket sector and employs over 4,500 people in Quebec.
