Urban Grocer
(Urban Grocer)

Have you heard of the latest and greatest new grocer in yyj?

Urban Grocer is nestled in The Junction of Oak Bay Avenue and Fort Street, where there was once a Safeway in the 1950s – and is looking to reinvigorate the grocery scene in the neighbourhood.

With an emphasis on community and supporting local, the new grocer offers a whole host of local products, including produce, a complete deli with house-made creations, an express post café, and a full selection of your every day grocery items as well.

If you’re looking to try them out for yourself, you’re in luck; on Saturday, October 24th, we’re giving away a $100 gift card to shop at the brand new grocery store. Contest details are below!

Urban Grocer offers a large selection of Vancouver Island-based products that include local brands such as Island Gold, Island Farmhouse Poultry, Abeego Beeswax Food Wraps, Justo’s Hummus, and Singing Bowl Granola, just to name a few.

The shop also hired locally for many new job positions amid COVID-19, and continues to do so; you can take a look at their positions available here.

Victoria Buzz will be on location to welcome Urban Grocer to the community this Saturday, October 24th where we’ll be giving away a ton of great prizes!

Can’t be there in person? Tune in on Facebook for our live video where we’ll be taking you along on an exclusive store tour where you can win an extra $75 gift card just for commenting your favourite items!
