The fourth Chalo! FreshCo location opened its doors in Brampton last week, welcoming customers with grand opening celebrations including samosa, chai, Bollywood music and dancing. Grand opening deals and exciting food sampling are underway at the new location at 8405 Financial Drive, north of Steeles Avenue in Brampton.
The new location will be managed by store operator and franchisee John Kendrick. His team of more than 100 employees are thrilled to open the new store in this growing community.
“The grand opening celebrations and deals will continue into the weekend,” said John Kendrick, franchisee, Financial Drive Chalo! FreshCo. “We invite our new neighbours and local families to come check out the store, our great prices, and broad product offering which includes a wide range of South Asian fresh and grocery products. Once customers see the amazing variety and unbeatable value, we know they will say ‘Vah!’ and come back for more!”
To keep the celebrations going into the weekend a Bollywood dance performance took place on Saturday, March 16 from 3 to 6 p.m. and a Halal Food Truck was also on site over the weekend offering free samples to customers.
The first 500 customers received a free pack of 18 eggs and throughout opening week shoppers who spent 50 dollars or more received a coupon for five dollars off their next visit to Chalo! FreshCo.
