In an ambitious plan that took just a week to complete, 11 of Overwaitea Food Group's 16 PriceSmart Foods stores in British Columbia have been converted to the Save-on-Foods banner. The announcement was officially made on February 6th and the conversion is scheduled to be completed by today (Friday, February 14th, 2014).
The company will re-focus its PriceSmart Foods brand in its remaining five stores in British Columbia: Vancouver (two locations), Richmond, Surrey (the 'Fleetwood' store) and Coquitlam. These five locations will remain PriceSmart Foods stores, which will position the PriceSmart Foods banner "for future growth and evolution with a continued dual-focus on offering a low price platform with market-specific international food offerings" according to company press release.

- Surrey (Cloverdale, Clayton & King George)
