    IDC Tour: Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens

    The newest Loblaws location at Maple Leaf Gardens opened in November 2011 and brought Toronto's downtown an innovative and vibrant food shopping experience to a landmark building. The building's facade was restored to its original glory and its revitalized interior repects the spirit of its hallowed halls.

    This 85,000 square-foot store holds the promise for a paradigm shift of the urban grocery store model. A three dimensional sculpture created from reclaimed stadium chairs, ice-rink light fixtures from the building, restored windows, exposed original concrete walls, wall murals and other artistic images capturing incredible moments, are just a few connections to the past found in the store.

    These historic elements are integrated into new stainless steel and blond wood grain surfaces, glossy black tile and a vibrant red and orange floor inspired by the colours from the original Loblaws logo. Together, they create a framework for the store layout that unfolds to accommodate the preferred food experience and needs of today's urban shoppers. The overall look and feel is simple and timeless and is meant to ensure food is centre stage.
