Home décor and kitchen supplies store Bed Bath and Beyond celebrated their grand opening on April 24, followed by the Save-On-Foods grand opening on May 17.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this vibrant and spirited community,” says Save-On-Foods president Darrell Jones. “I am sure our new neighbours in Medicine Hat will love what Save-On-Foods brings to the table.”

Based in British Columbia, Save-On-Foods is Western Canada’s largest grocery retailer. Medicine Hat is home to the company’s fourth location to open this year, following three new Calgary stores.

Save-On-Foods Medicine Hat is a full conventional grocery store, offering a full line of Western Canadian AAA beef, Western Canadian pork and poultry and prepared meals, including a chicken wing bar, sushi, salads and sandwiches.

The store also offers customers the convenience of online shopping with same-day pickup.

Strachan Corner is a 12.95 acre infill project at the junction of Dunmore Road and the Trans-Canada Highway. In total, the development features over 125,000 square feet of new retail space.

The project is a redevelopment by Edmonton-based Brentwood Developments and is anchored by Save-On-Foods and Bed Bath and Beyond.

Several more companies opened new locations at Strachan Corner in the past year, including Tim Horton’s, Orange Theory Fitness and other retailers. In February, Neil Tolloch opened his second Browns Socialhouse franchise.

Nearby, the Braemar Group is developing 4.34 acres into a 110-room Marriott TownePlace Suites, with completion expected in mid 2019. Next door, Sun City Hotels is building a 120-suite Best Western Inn and Suites.

Next to Strachan Corner, South Country Coop and Canalta Group are developing 17 acres, with construction complete on a Boston Pizza and an A&W. An extended stay hotel, a senior’s living facility, a gas bar, liquor store and car wash are under construction.

Indeed, commercial development continues to thrive in Medicine Hat, as new retailers like Save-on-Foods and Bed Bath and Beyond open locations in Canada’s sunniest city.
