Which Freshco/ No Frills has good collection of Indian groceries

TL;DR - Which Freshco/ No Frills/ Food basics has maximum variety of Indian/ Asian groceries?

I am a resident of midtown Toronto, Forest hill area and my ethnicity is Indian.
Once or twice a month I have to make a trip to an Indian grocery store to stock up. Got laid off recently due to Covid so had to sell off my car. Now I rely on public transport or Uber.
Earlier I would drive to the suburbs with Indian population like Brampton and Mississauga for my groceries.

But now with Uber/ Public transport at my disposal - I would like to know which Freshco/ No Frills/ Food basics/ Sobeys has most Indian/ Asian stuff?

Thanks in advance.

If you do ever get a car again, or even via ttc, you can go to iqbal halal foods in thorncliffe. Its one of the original stores and its massive. Has mostly everything. I know freshco typically has alot of Indian stuff but I'm not sure about the ones in downtown.

Thanks, Yes I am a regular at Iqbal but they don't price match :( :P
I was looking specifically at canadian stores because of their price match policy. Usually it covers up my Uber cost easily :)

I just found out there's a Freshco at Dundas and Parliament with free underground parking. They have a good selection of Indian/ Asian supplies and they do price match with few stores too.
