Tecumseh gets Always More For Less with Food Basics

Tecumseh, ON, June 27, 2019  – Food Basics opened its newest location, as of 8:00 AM EST on Thursday, June 27 in Tecumseh, ON, located at 1655 Manning Rd. A grand opening celebration was held in the morning, featuring instore giveaways and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Gary McNamara.

With over 32,000 sq. ft. of modern retail space, Food Basics Tecumseh will feature BBQ chicken, organic, produce, OLG Lottery, Western Union, and propane just in time for grilling season! In addition to the gorgeous new space, the grocer also offers customers a wide array of its high-quality, budget-friendly Irresistibles and Selection store brand products.

“The opening of this new location is great news for Tecumseh”, says Darren Shannon, store manager. “I’ve seen this town transform into such a thriving community and I’m so glad we can be a part of its growth and look forward to delivering food that is always fresh, always in stock and always at great prices”.

“The local grocery store is a key piece to the community. We have a responsibility to the residents of Tecumseh to be active members of the community”, says John Manax, Vice President of Operations.  “This is why we have decided to sponsor the Tecumseh Eagles Minor Hockey Team and look forward to partnering with them this fall”.

To further strengthen its ties with the community, Food Basics presented a cheque at the ribbon-cutting ceremony to the Windsor Goodfellows, who provide support to thousands of families year-round.

Food Basics operates its network of 133 stores based on three guiding pillars: Always Fresh, Always in Stock and Always Great Prices. The in-stock promise features a rain check, plus 10 per cent off the advertised price of items in the Food Basics weekly flyer, to ensure customers take advantage of great deals on their next visit.
