Longo’s Brothers Fruit Market will open its 34th store at Yonge Sheppard Centre on July 31. The latest store will boast more than 40,000 square feet.
“As we continue to grow, we remain more committed than ever to deliver an excellent retail experience with an abundance of fresh foods and unparalleled guest service,” said Anthony Longo, president and CEO of Longo’s.
Convenience was a critical factor for Longo’s when selecting this location. The Yonge Sheppard Centre has direct transit accessibility, free parking with purchase and Grocery Gateway integration for its guests.
“This location was a natural choice for our next store as it has the ability to create incremental value to our guests due to its proximity to complementary businesses,” said John Visconti, store manager for Yonge and Sheppard. “As a mixed-use center, guests who visit Longo’s will also have convenient access to banking, fitness facilities, medical offices, laundry services and much more.”
Inside the store, guests will find new and unique integrations including a Living Well section dedicated to health-focused products and a Longo’s in-house Registered Dietitian, who will offer personal expert advice on living well to guests.
“Longo's has also confirmed new store openings in Liberty Village and East Gwillimbury within the next six months. A further announcement is expected around its new concept, Pronto Eats, launching in The Hudson Bay Centre towards the end of the summer.
Longo’s is a family-owned Canadian organization that started in 1956 when three brothers, Tommy, Joe and Gus opened their first fruit market. Today, Longo’s operates full-service grocery stores across the GTA as well as www.GroceryGateway.com, the leader in online sales of home-delivered groceries. Longo’s employs more than 6,500 team members.
