    Yorkville Village Opens Food Hall

    Toronto’s Yorkville Village shopping centre is continuing with renovations and this month, opened a food hall on its lower level. So far five tenants have opened in the new space, and more will follow as construction continues. 

    The food hall is located adjacent to the mall’s ‘Oval Square’ – an atrium area providing natural light to the mall below. This fall, a new Yorkville Avenue mall entrance will direct shoppers into the new food hall, drawing traffic to the mall, while adding an attraction to the neighbourhood. 

    New food hall tenants include Toronto-based health-focused Freshii, Keboberie (gourmet Lebanese food), Pannizza (quick-serve pizza/Panini), The Fresh Tea Shop, and Corner – a new concept by Toronto-based Spoon & Fork, offering Thai cuisine.

    LCBO launches website to sell beer, wine and spirits online, with delivery to homes and stores

    The Liquor Control Board of Ontario is launching an online site where people can purchase nearly 5,000 products and have them shipped to their home or a local LCBO store. 

    Sousa says the endless “virtual shelf space” will give people a huge selection of beer, wine and spirits right at their fingertips. 

    Purchases would be delivered to a local LCBO store for free or to a customer’s home through Canada Post for a fee.

    Sousa says wines from British Columbia and Quebec will also be available at LCBO.com thanks to an agreement reached last week by the premiers of the three provinces.

    The LCBO says 800 of the products available online will be exclusive to LCBO.com and will not be available in any of their retail outlets.

    Loblaw verifying accuracy of its coin-counting machines after TD Bank ditches theirs over errors

    Canada’s largest grocery chain says it’s trying to verify the accuracy of the coin-counting kiosks in its stores after TD Bank got rid of similar machines from its branches over allegations that they’ve been nickel-and-diming customers.

    “We are aware of the concerns recently raised about coin-counting machines,” Kevin Groh, the vice-president of corporate affairs and communication for Loblaw, said in an email.

    “We have been working with Coinstar to confirm the accuracy of the coin-counting machines located in our stores and have no current plans to remove the machines. Should customers have a concern with any of the coin-counting machines in one of our stores, please contact our customer service team to let us know.”

    Tim Hortons plans expansion into Southeast Asia starting with the Philippines

    Restaurant Brands International, the multinational owner and operator of Tim Hortons and Burger King, said Thursday it has partnered with a group of investors to establish a master franchise joint venture company to sell the fast-food chain’s coffee and doughnuts in the Southeast Asian country.

    RBI chose the Philippines for its first stop in Southeast Asia because the country has a strong economy and a fast-growing quick-service market, said CEO Daniel Schwartz.

    Kobza hinted Tim Hortons would aim to match the level of some of its rivals in the local market — many of which boast hundreds of restaurants in the country, he said.

    The stores will serve many of the same staples as Canadian locations, like Timbits and iced capps, as well as some surprises, he added.
