Toronto, ON, January 11, 2018 – Metro Lloyd Manor will reopen its doors on Thursday, January 11 to the Etobicoke community after undergoing extensive renovations, and upgrades to products and services. The store is located at 201 Lloyd Manor Road, Etobicoke, and will remain open for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Featuring a brand-new Starbucks counter; organic meats and produce; fresh, sustainable seafood with expert advice; made-to-order artisan pizza; an on-site sushi chef; fresh-made-in-store salads, juices, cakes and single-serve pastries; catering and floral design services; a wide assortment of health and wellness products; specialty and imported grocery items; and so much more, Metro Lloyd Manor is a one-stop community destination for all fresh and local needs.

“Our goal is to offer our customers a stress-free, enjoyable grocery shopping experience, so the upgrades we’ve made to our products and services are sure to resonate with the people who live and work in the area,” says Joe Fusco, Senior Vice President, Metro. “Our Fresh2Go counter has more readymade, convenient options for on-the-go customers; we’ve opened up our meat counter to showcase the butchers at work, who can offer expert advice; and we’ve improved our deli selection with local meats and fine cheese.”

Local items featured at Metro Lloyd Manor include organic fresh chicken from Yorkshire Valley Farms, baked goods from Dimpflmeier, prepared foods from Sabatini Gourmet Foods and many more.
