CALGARY, Oct. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - The wait is over for residents of Calgary's up and coming Seton neighbourhood as they celebrate the grand opening of the Save-On-Foods on Saturday, October 19, 2013. This beautiful new store proudly offers an incredible line-up of products and services that Save-On-Foods is known for as well as a variety of fresh, new ideas in every department. Known as one of the leading grocery formats in Western Canada, Save-On-Foods is proud of its reputation for delivering an exceptional grocery shopping experience, innovative new shopping options and great savings for customers.

With the launch of the new Save-On-Foods Kitchen, mealtime just got a lot easier as they're dishing up soon-to-be family favourites at the Smoke and Flame BBQ, pizza station and salad and sushi bar … all freshly made right before your eyes. This store is offering something for everyone in every corner of the store, including personalized meat services, cakes for every occasion at the bakery, homemade fudge and even a chocolate melting station where brownies and even cakes are being dipped in rich, melted chocolate.

Along with all the incredible products and services offered, this store is staying true to its roots offering the same friendly, helpful team that has been a proud part of the Alberta community for over two decades. "With over 98 years in the grocery business, our customers are our number one focus," said Store Manager, Carl Ryan.

Customers will also find an impressive product lineup at exceptional prices, putting the spotlight on local flavour. Suppliers such as Red Hat Growers Co-op near Redcliff and Calgary's Lakeview Bakery for gluten-free options, just to name a few, are proud to fill the shelves with their local products. Along with these items, the store boasts exceptional value with over 5,000 in-store specials each week, 2000 items on sale in the flyer and 600 items you can Save-On Everyday.  The team is also exceptionally proud to bring its customers everything you can't put a price on like value-added service and helpful, friendly team members who genuinely care.
