Organic Garage Expands in Toronto
Today, let’s zoom in on Organic Garage, a Canadian food retailer specialized in organic food sold at affordable price. Its mantra is “Healthier food for Less”
Founded in 2005 by a fourth generation grocer, Organic Garage is headquartered in Toronto and only operates 3 stores. The latest one has just opened a few weeks ago in Toronto’s west-end Junction neighborhood.
This new 15,000-square-foot flagship features a comprehensive range of organic products. It incorporates one of Canada’s largest 100% dedicated Certified Organic produce departments, self-serve prepared foods, a sustainable sushi take-out bar, fresh juice bar, a cafe and a large variety of grocery, dairy, bakery, meat, frozen foods, vitamins & supplements, health & beauty, and more than 100 bulk food items.
On top of that, Organic Garage has introduced environementally friendly fixtures such as a non-polluting refrigeration system.
Designed by retail design agency api(+), an award-winning design firm specializing in food retail, specialty retail, restaurants and retail centers, the store offers an elegant and creative urban atmosphere.
The new store environment takes inspiration from its industrial surroundings and city streetscapes. It authentically incorporates elements such as streetscape-inspired architectural details and textures, murals and graffiti, street signs, pavement markings, guardrails, street lights, and building signs. To add to the authenticity, a local graffiti artist painted over brick walls giving a vibrant and urban feel to the space.
