We Love Sobeys!

Sobeys has been known as your trusted grocer for 100 years and counting. They are headquartered in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. As a proud Canadian company, and one of only two national grocery retailers in Canada, Sobeys Inc. serves the food shopping needs of Canadians with more than 1,500 stores in all 10 provinces.

They go under the retail banners that include Sobeys, Safeway, IGA, Foodland, FreshCo, Price Chopper, Thrifty Foods and Lawtons Drugs, as well as more than 330 retail fuel locations. In 2007, the company marked its 100th anniversary! Sobeys is truly a family owned and operated business that has grown into an empire over the decades, but it all began from humble beginnings.

Sobeys was founded in Stellarton, Nova Scotia by John W. Sobey in 1907. J.W. started a meat delivery business with a horse-drawn cart. He purchased and collected livestock from local farmers for resale. In 1924 his son Frank H. Sobey convinced J.W. to expand the delivery business into a full grocery business, serving the industrial Picou County region. From that point until his death, Frank was the driving force behind the business. Sobeys opened its first self-serve supermarket in 1949. Today, Sobeys Inc. is a $17.6 billion company.
