A new Filipino grocer is coming to Winnipeg’s Garden City Shopping Centre.
Seafood City supermarket will take up 43,000 square feet of the 92,000 square-foot vacancy left behind when Sears closed up shop.
The store calls itself the leading “one-stop market, shopping, dining and retail hub catering to the Asian/Filipino lifestyle” and has locations from Southern California to Mississauga.
About 57,000 people of Filipino descent live in Winnipeg, making it the largest Filipino population by percentage in Canada. The addition of the supermarket comes on the heels on the opening of two Jollibee locations in the city, a Philippines-based fast-food chain.
