People in Kindersley and area are going to have another grocery option before the end of 2018. Buy-Low Foods is preparing its new space in the Kindersley Mall.

Buy-Low Foods will become one of the mall’s anchor stores and it is taking over the space most recently occupied by another grocer. Peavey Mart has taken over a space once occupied by Home Hardware, so the mall will soon have both of its anchor spots filled once again.

According to the company, Buy-Low Foods is the largest wholesale distributor to independent food retailers across Canada and the brand operates its own food stores in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The food retailer has been owned and operated by The Jim Pattison Group since 1995.

“The construction phase of our project is progressing as scheduled,” Corea said. “We are pleased with the current status of the project considering the scope of work and the degree of changes we have undertaken. The construction team is working hard to complete the many phases of the project.”
