A new Super C opens in Ste-Claire - An investment of nearly $5 million.

STE-CLAIRE, June 13, 2024 - After several weeks of construction, the 109th Super C store officially opened its doors this morning in Ste-Claire, Québec, just in time for the city's 200th anniversary celebrations. Thanks to an investment of nearly $5 million, this new 24,000 square foot store employs 100 people, with the vast majority being Metro former employees, as well as about 50 new colleagues. 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 Super C banner, which was recognized as Quebec's leading discount retailer in terms of customer experience by the WOW Léger 2023 study, opens its doors in a building located at165 boulevard Bégin. 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 Beauce, a long-time partner, notably through our food recovery program One More Bite.
