Food City (Canada)

A typical Food City store had:
- Frozen goods
- Canned goods
The stores employed a plastic numbered basket system at the checkout that would be placed onto rollers and/or a conveyor and then is loaded by staff at a drive-through. This system, which is becoming increasingly rare, is commonly referred to as parcel pickup or car order.
Smaller stores were re-branded as Food Town; the Food City name disappeared after the sale of the parent company to Sobeys in 1998. Many of the locations became Price Chopper stores, currently known as FreshCo.
