QF wins grocer awards

COURTENAY — Quality Foods newest store in Courtenay’s Driftwood Mall has been named the top grocer in all of B.C. and the Yukon. The store came out on top in the large store category, then went on to capture the national bronze as part of the Independent Grocer of the Year Awards program.

The honour was accepted by QF founding partners John Briuolo and Ken Schley on behalf of Dan Gigliotti and his store people at the October 25 Canadian Federation of Independent Grocer’s (CFIG) Annual Awards Dinner in Toronto.

The award was presented to the store in large part because of their strong and consistent participation in community activities, the shopping experience from a customer’s point of view and many other criteria.

The Bowen Road  (Nanaimo) Quality Foods’ entry into the Master Merchandiser Awards was the judge’s favourite in the medium store category, winning the gold across Canada. The store also received the Canadian Independent Grocer Platinum Award for ten years of excellence .

Quality Foods Nanoose Bay also received a Platinum Award for ten consecutive years of national recognition in the Awards of Merit program.

In fact, all 11 QF stores received an Award of Merit from judges who visited all applicants across all Canadian provinces ant territories.
