Super Centre was a hyper supermarket banner used by Loblaws during the 1990s in Ontario. Some stores were an expansion from the Super-Valu banner.

These stores were larger than standard supermarkets (Each of the stores are about 60,000 to 120,000 square feet (5,000 to 10,000 m²) in size on average) and sold a wider selection of merchandise and included pharmacies and department store merchandise.

The initial concept was successful, but many of their locations failed as competition grew. The concept was abandoned by the late 1990s with locations being downsized, re-branded as Loblaws stores and sold altogether.

The brand survived in Atlantic Canada as Atlantic Superstore and re-emerged later as Real Canadian Superstore.

All but one of the SuperCentre stores were retained by Loblaws:
