Hey, check out this Adonis!

Take a tour of the latest Adonis store, opened in Toronto

Metro-owned ethnic grocer Marche Adonis opened its largest supermarket yet, in suburban Toronto, last month.

The store, in the city’s Scarborough district, is 60,000 square feet–some 5,000 square feet bigger than Adonis’s next largest store, in Laval, Que.–and features, among other things, an in-house pita-making factory behind glass walls.

This is Adonis’ second store in Ontario. The first opened a year ago in Mississauga. Six other Adonis stores are situated in and around Montreal, where the retailer was founded.

Adonis’s roots in Montreal are as a Middle Eastern grocer. But in Ontario it is targeting “most multicultural communities” including Chinese and  South Asian shoppers, said Nabil Abi Aad, Adonis’s purchasing and marketing manager.

“We are trying to give the customer what they are missing from back home. We’ve increased our assortment so we’re reaching more communities,” he said.
