Kelowna grocer adds wine to its offerings

Your Independent Grocer store in Capri Mall is the latest grocery store to add B.C. wine to it's shelves.



Kelowna is getting a another grocery store wine shop.

Your Independent Grocer in the Capri Centre Mall has announced it will start selling more than 400 varieties of B.C. wine – starting today.

The store will join the Save-On Foods outlets in Orchard Plaza and the Mission, as well as the Real Canadian Superstore as Kelowna grocery stores that now sell wine under new results recently brought in by the provincial government.

Your Independent Grocer is owned by Loblaws—which also owns Real Canadian Superstore—and in addition to the new location for wine sales in Kelonwa, it was also announced that the Real Canadian Superstore in Vernon will now start selling wine as well.

Both the Kelowna and Vernon locations will have a wine expert in store during peak business hours to advice customers on the wines the store will carry.

Meanwhile, another grocery store chair, Safeway, has opened an standalone liquor store in Kelowna’s Central Park retail centre.

The store, which used to be a Liquor Town outlet, is the second Safeway liquor store in B.C.—the other is in Fort St. John—and is part of an 85-store chain across the country run under with the Safeway, Sobey’s and Thrifty Foods banners. All are operated by parent company Sobey’s,a large grocery retailer headquartered in Ontario.

Keri Scobie, director of communications for Sobey Inc.’s Western Canada operations in Calgary said the Kelowna Safeway store in Dilworth Plaza cannot be licensed to sell wine under current B.C. government rules.
