As part of the deal for Sobeys to takeover Safeway, four Winnipeg Safeway locations will be put up for sale. Those locations are:
- 1441 Main Street
- 77 Vermillion Road
- 1120 Grant Avenue
- 850 Dakota Street
The stores at Vermillion, Grant, and Dakota are at prime locations and are expected to sell as soon as it hits the market. The one at Main St is a different story and might take a bit longer to sell. If a buyer isn’t found immediately, North End shoppers might have to travel a bit further for their groceries.
Sobeys will be putting a total of 23 stores up for sale in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba for regulatory approval of its $5.8-billion purchase of Safeway. [CTV WINNIPEG]
