The Metro Plus St-David: completely reinvented - A $5.5 million investment


Montreal, July 21, 2017 – Customers of the Metro Plus St-David, which opened in June of 2006, can now enjoy a completely reinvented supermarket! Following 6 months of renovation work, a 5,000 sq. ft. extension and a $5.5 million investment, the store has been revamped from A to Z: everything has been redesigned and reconfigured to ensure an optimal shopping experience and to provide products with all the attention that they deserve. Along with completely redesigning the décor, this complete renovation was also an opportunity to reposition several departments, add hundreds of new items, and create no fewer than twenty jobs. 

Fresher and more complete
Freshness, one of Metro’s top priorities, is omnipresent inside the store. The impressive colourful produce department includes local products in line with the season that come directly from local producers, fresh-cut fruit and delicious smoothies and freshly squeezed juices made on-site. A complete overhaul of the bakery area will allow customers access to a wider array of products from Première Moisson, the well-known Quebec bakery. In the meat department, a team of experts prepares cuts upon request, suggests products and provides tips to help customers cook their meat to perfection. As for the fish department, it offers a vast selection of fish and seafood, as well as a fish smokehouse. For consumers looking for a ready-to-eat meal solution, the Metro Plus offers a nice variety of high quality takeout dishes. Finally, consumers can expect to see something new in every department, notably the arrival of a choice of twice as many beers from microbreweries, an offering of fine cheeses and improved deli items, as well as a wide variety of gluten-free and organic products.

Mr. Marc Picard, the franchised owner, along with his team of 140 employees, are very proud of their store and invite the local and regional clientele to stop by for a visit.
