Superstore at 3633 Westwinds Drive NE, Calgary reopened



    BRAMPTON, ON, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Loblaw Companies Limited reopened its
Superstore store located at 3633 Westwinds Drive NE, Calgary on Wednesday,
February 11, 2009 at 9:30am MT.
    Alberta Health Services inspected the store this morning and provided
authority for the store to reopen immediately.
    The health and safety of our customers is paramount to us and we
apologize for any concern our temporary closing may have caused.
    The store was temporarily closed on Tuesday, February 10 at 4:00pm MT
following an inspection by Alberta Health Services that was predicated by a
pest sighting.
    The store underwent a rigorous sanitization process to ensure a clean and
safe store environment. Our food safety team reviewed all products in the
store and ensured that any products deemed at risk were removed. Pest control
processes and procedures were reviewed and enhanced.
    We are committed to providing our customers with a clean and safe store
environment and offering products that are produced, sourced and handled
responsibly. We are regularly inspected by the local health authority and
audited 4 times per year internally to review established and documented
practices around the safe and sanitary food hygiene handling practices and
procedures.
    All customers who wish to return products to the store can do so at the
customer service desk for a full refund. We encourage our customers who have
any questions about products and our refund policy to please contact Loblaw
customer service at 1-866-999-9890 or customerservice@superstore.ca/west.
    For additional health concerns about products purchased at this location,
please contact Alberta Health Services at (403) 943-2296 or
contact.environmentalhealth@albertahealthservices.ca. The risk of food borne
illness from this type of situation is low. Undamaged pre-packaged and canned
food purchased from our store would not be a health concern. However, if a
package appears damaged, do not consume.
