Brandon and Megan Cook are looking forward to opening their new No Frills® grocery store located at 30 Iber Road on August 20. The store’s official opening ceremonies begin at 7:30 am.
Brandon and Megan’s No Frills® is the second No Frills® store in the Ottawa area. The store’s opening ceremony and ribbon cutting will be celebrated with Pierre Poilievre, MP Carleton; Goldie Ghamari, MPP Carleton; Stittsville Councillor Glen Gower, as well as store owners Brandon and Megan Cook. The Cooks will be supporting the Stittsville Food Bank with a donation being made during the ceremony.
“I couldn’t be more excited to bring No Frills® to the Stittsville community,” said store owner Brandon Cook. “I look forward to providing my neighbours with exceptional customer service and a great selection of quality, fresh and grocery items at low prices. At the end of the day, a banana is a banana so why pay more when you don’t have to.”
Brandon Cook, started his career with No Frills® in 2002 in Picton as a part-time grocery clerk, eventually moving his way up to a department manager. After joining the No Frills® candidate program in 2012, Brandon has owned and operated Brandon and Megan’s No Frills® in Orléans since 2017 before making the move to Stittsville.
At 29,000 square feet, the new store is fresh, bright, with easy to navigate aisles, multiple checkouts and accessible parking. Whether it is through the weekly flyer, Won’t Be Beat®* price-match program, great in-store brands or club size packaging formats, Brandon and Megan’s No Frills® is a community champion for cost control and trusted low prices. With the added benefit of the PC Optimum™ loyalty program, residents of Stittsville can earn points to save on future grocery purchases. The store will be open daily from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm.
To help customers and employees maintain social distancing at this time, the store has implemented measures to help reduce contact and control the traffic, including limiting the number of people in the store at one time, plexiglass barriers between customers and cashiers, and decals on the floor to help customers distance while lining up to pay.
The first No Frills® opened in East York in 1978 bringing innovative grocery shopping ideas to the forefront – forgoing added extras for lower price points. This is still the focus of the grocery chain today.
