Thrifty Foods to anchor Courtenay development

Thrifty Foods to anchor Courtenay development

Thrifty Foods will spearhead a major commercial development on a fivehectare parcel in east Courtenay, the grocery chain announced Thursday.

It will be the second store in the Comox Valley for Thrifty Foods and the 29th in the chain. It is also the third slated for opening in the next year after New Westminster and Maple Ridge. The expansion follows openings last year in North Vancouver, Abbotsford and Brooks Landing in Nanaimo.

Also in the area that it's proposed, at Costco is opening up pretty soon.

Thrifty Foods has been wanting to open a second location in the Valley either in Comox or at the Driftwood Mall in Courtenay where Save-On-Foods used to be which now is a Quality Foods.

I miss Courtenay. Such a great town. My parents live about 20 minutes north of the city.

I've been away from the Comox Valley for almost five years now. It's impressive to see the growth that's recently occurred. Would love to move back if there was work.

I'm in the same boat. Moved away after highschool in 2007 to join military. Miss the place to bits.
