A new Super C opens in Buckingham

An investment of $12 million

Buckingham, November 30, 2023 - After several months of construction, the 106th Super C store located at 155 avenue Lépine, officially opened its doors this morning in Buckingham. Thanks to a $12 million investment, this new 35,000 square foot store has created approximately 130 jobs. The inauguration took place on Wednesday evening in the presence of many dignitaries and members of the management.

Grocery shopping in store or online
The banner, which was recognized in 2022 by Protégez-vous magazine for offering the lowest-priced grocery basket in Quebec, opens in a brand-new building. In keeping with the evolving needs of consumers, customers can shop in the spacious aisles of the store or online through the click and collect option. In addition, self-serve checkouts have been installed, as in all Super C stores, to speed up and improve customer service.

To celebrate this major investment in the community, Super C also presented a $5,000 cheque to Moisson Outaouais, a long-time partner, notably through our food recovery program One More Bite.

Super C, the best quality-price ratio
The new team is ready to offer the community a wide variety of fresh products and groceries, adapted to local demand, at very competitive prices. And that's what Super C is known for: offering fresh and quality products at low prices. The Super C store in Buckingham also offers a wide variety of fresh meats, large-format, organic and natural products, a selection of craft beers and microbrews, as well as Première Moisson products.

"The addition of this new store is part of a deployment plan that will allow us to consolidate our position as the best discounters in Quebec. We are proud to say that we have the best quality-price ratio," said Loïc Cloutier, Senior Vice President - Super C. "Our teams work hard every day to offer consumers quality products at very competitive prices and a shopping experience that is both simple and efficient. We are committed to three guarantees - Always Fresh, Always in Stock and Always Great Prices."

Super C Buckingham is open every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
