One of Brampton’s largest supermarkets will be getting a make-over and a new name later this year while still staying under the Loblaws umbrella.

Staff at the Real Canadian Superstore at Hurontario St. and Steeles Ave. West have said the grocery store will be switching over to a No Frills in the fall.

The changeover is expected to happen sometime in October, but few details were available Wednesday (May 3) on whether there will be any closures for the re-branding or potential renovations.

Real Canadian Superstore and No Frills are both owned by Loblaw Companies Ltd. which has its headquarters in Brampton. Insauga.com reached out to Lobalw Companies Ltd. for comment on the timing of the changeover, as well as plans for any staffing changes but no response was immediately received.

Former company CEO Galen Weston has made headlines recently as food costs have risen at the fastest rate in decades. Weston announced last month he is stepping back from day-to-day operations of Loblaw Companies Ltd. in a senior leadership shuffle.

Higher grocery prices in Canada have been attributed to supply chain disruptions, extreme weather, soaring input costs and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but some Canadians have questioned whether competition or so-called greedflation by grocers have also played a role.
