Good news for Torontonians....+
A new health food store just opened up somewhat close to me. Planned on making the trek to Whole Foods today but it is not that close.
The chain is called Planet Organic and there are 5 out west and one in Halifax. It is a Canadian chain.
I emailed the company awhile back when I drove by the location and saw that it was opening soon. Had never heard of Planet Organic. They emailed back saying sometime in the spring. My friend called me a few minutes ago to say she saw a full page ad in the Mississauga news that it is now open and that they plan to open 7 more locations in the greater Toronto area in the next two years.
For those in the west end or Mississauga, the store is on Lakeshore Road between Cawthra and Hurontario. Don't have the exact address. For those that use to go to Alternatives in Port Credit, Planet Organic has taken over that location.
(Very sad day when the two Alternatives closed in Oakville and Port Credit). I suspect they couldn't complete when the huge Whole Foods opened up near their Oakville location. Alternatives was kind of a grass roots health food store.
So when I motivate in the next few minutes, I am going to check it out! :)
ohh, that's fantastic for you!! :) now if only they could open something in my area that would be fantastic.
i have a co-op a few blocks from me, i'm a member, but they don't have a lot of the fun/fancy stuff at a good price like trader joes/w.f. carries. i use them mostly for produce and bulk grains, other than that the faux meat/cheeze (not that i eat it much) is more than the reg. grocery which stocks a little veggie food.
