In the decade after its purchase by the Pattison Food Group, Overwaitea increased floor space by 140 percent and doubled its market share, which was still relatively small in the late 1960s and 1970s.
The Jim Pattison Group, a holding company based in Vancouver, BC, with C$14 billion in annual sales, purchased Overwaitea in 1968, not long after the group got its start in 1961 with the acquisition of an auto dealership.
Community focus is another Save-On-Foods mandate, whether through customizing its product lineup to support area growers or giving back to those in need.
Save-On-Foods has a reputation for providing customers with a great in-store experience, and David Karwacki, CEO at The Star Group in Saskatoon, SK, is a fan.
The Overwaitea Food Group got its start in 1915 when Robert C. Kidd opened an eponymously named store, R.C. Kidd, in New Westminster, British Columbia.
