In the fall of 2019, Chinese grocery chain Sungiven Foods opened its first Canadian store at City Square in Vancouver. The store was the first of about 15 locations planned for the BC Lower Mainland over the next several years.

A casualty of the February 2020 Canada-wide closure announcement, the Pier 1 Imports location at 1595 Marine Drive in North Vancouver stood shuttered for several months before construction signage for Sungiven Foods was erected at the beginning of 2021.

Since March 2021, the Sungiven Foods construction has progressed and ‘now hiring’ signage has been added to the construction blackout film obstructing views into the construction unfolding inside. Retail Insider will continue to monitor for its opening and provide updates as they unfold.

Sungiven Foods Canada Inc. is a subsidiary of Xiamen Sungiven Foods Holdings Ltd., based in Xiamen, China. The company operates more than 90 stores in China, most being in Xiamen. The company’s Canadian head office was opened earlier this year in Burnaby.

A cross-Canada store expansion is expected, which could heat up competition amongst grocery retailers and particularly with Asian grocers as well as chains such as T&T. Sungiven Foods operates more than 100 stores in China and will also expand into the US. [Read the Full Article Here]
