What's up with Price Chopper?

Their flyers are no longer accessible on any of the normal flyer apps (Flipp, Reebee, ************, RFD)?

No flyer even on their own website.

I didn't even know there were still Price Choppers around.
According to Wiki, as of September 13th there is only one left.
Most likely the cost to produce flyers for them out ways the return now or perhaps Sobeys has other plans with the store.

One of the last ones at Jane and Sheppard is gone recently.
Many were converted to Fresco/Chalo.

The one at Bridlewood/Bridletown mall is on standby. They do not wish to renovate until they get the new lease agreement.
Condos are expected to go on the land, but where and when is still up in the air.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

It’s Chalo! Freshco.
Chalo means “Let’s Go!” in Punjabi/Hindi

It’s a Freshco with wider selection of South Asian groceries.

Never heard that name before in my whole entire life.


Was watching a video of AdamTheWoo on YouTube and he visited a small town in the US where they had an IGA. From the signage it definitely seen better days probably dating back to the 70 or 80s.

Interesting that they would put something so specific that only one ethnicity would recognize what "Chalo" means. Personally I don't understand why they would market it this way unless they plan on branding this "chain" to be south asian centric like Loblaws has T&T branding to be Asian Centric.

www.chalofreshco.com Just call it Freshco.

No Frills website is www.nofrills.ca Not www.haulernofrills.ca

Even though its technically Mississauga, that area is heavily Punjabi/Hindi. Basically they're catering to that demographic but everywhere else, its still Freshco
