Food Basics is a grocery store in Ontario, Canada with the slogan, "Always More for Less." Their goal is to provide affordable basics on all food items. They guarantee fresh and in stock items for purchase, with a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied.
Food Basics started in 1995 by A&P Canada in Toronto, Ontario. It was originally positioned to compete with No Frills, another discount grocery store owned by Loblaw Companies. It was acquired by Metro in 2005 and now operates 130+ stores around the province of Ontario.
Because of the low maintenance style, minimal staff, and basic decor, Food Basics is able to keep their costs very low. They do still offer discounts and promotions through the weekly flyer in store and online. There is also a Food Basics app that can be downloaded for exclusive offers and deals. Food Basics also offers a discount for students.
The best way to stay up to date on news and events is through Food Basics' fun and engaging social media platforms. Here thy post updates to store hours and policies and other initiatives going on. Food Basics is also active in the community and supports charities such as Breakfast Clubs of Canada or the Ontario Association of Food Banks.
Food Basics carries products from Metro's private label brands. "Selection" products are regular store-brand, "Irresistibles" are premium quality products, and "Personnelle" are pharmacy, health and personal care products.
