NoFrills, a discount grocer owned by Loblaws, has recently opened a store in Kits. The store is anything but a beautiful place to shop, but by cutting back on fixtures, having customers bag their own groceries, eliminating in store baking and specialty butcher cuts and so on, the store is able to cut their prices incredibly low.

They are currently running a “Won’t Be Beat” low price campaign. If you find a lower price anywhere in the city, they guarantee to match or beat the price on any item. I picked up a few deals and was surprised to see a decent organic selection in the store too.

With grocery costs top of mind in our household, I am pleased to have them join the neighbourhood. What are your thoughts on this new neighbourhood grocer?

    1600 block is not in Kits (Kitsilano starts at Burrard St.).

    And there’s already a Paul’s No Frills much nearer to being in Kits (at 4th and Alma).

    (Sorry for being pedantic, I like the blog, just sayin’)

    I LOVE No Frills! Shop at the Alma one all the time. This new one is much closer to home:)

    It’s at 4th and Pine, one block from Burrard. Please.

    The Broadway @ Alberta store is bigger and the attached pharmacy is great.

    It’s an easy bike ride from Kits and there are some charming places for lunch nearby.

    Would be good if the Kits one could post their business hours somewhere.
