Farm Boy is expanding across Ontario, and Ottawa is getting two brand new stores. One of the newest Farm Boys in Ottawa will not only be the biggest new store to be built, but it will also be the grocery chain's biggest store ever.

The new location, which will be in Ottawa's Train Yards at 830 Belfast Road, will be 38,000 square feet. That's plenty of space to keep offering everything that Farm Boy is known for.

That includes fresh groceries, hot meals for take-out, and plenty of Farm Boy's own specialty products and exclusive brands. 

"We’ve come a long way from our first small produce store in Cornwall”, Farm Boy co-founder and co-CEO Jean-Louis Bellemare said in a press release.

"Since day one, we believed that if we made our customers happy, they would come back. This concept has worked for us so far and we will continue to focus on providing an outstanding customer experience as we grow."

The giant Ottawa Train Yards location will be open in 2020. A second new Ottawa location will also be opened at 193 Metcalfe Street in Spring 2020. It will be 29,000 square feet.

Farm Boy is also looking to expand its brand to other cities in Ontario.

In addition to the new Ottawa stores, the company is opening five new Toronto locations from 2020 to 2021. New Farm Boy locations will also open St. Catharines and Newmarket

A newly opened location in Burlington is the first store to be completed and opened to the public in the new expansion plan.

"Our in-store experience and fresh food offering continues to evolve with our customers and get stronger with each store we open," co-CEO Jeff York said, "We’re delighted to see how well our offer continues to resonate with our customers."

With these new stores, the number of Farm Boy locations in Ontario will reach 37.
