October 1st, 2014

Nova Scotia’s own Pete’s Fine Foods has been recognized once again by the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG) as being one of Canada’s best grocers.

On September 30th at an awards gala in Toronto, Pete’s Halifax was honoured with two notable awards: National Silver for Best Specialty Store; and The Platinum Achievement Award, recognizing ten years of receiving awards of merit for excellence. Fresh Entry into Hall of Fame In addition to this year’s awards, the CFIG announced that Pete’s Fine Foods would be inducted into the CFIG Hall of Fame. Each of the competing stores across Canada is visited personally by a retail management expert who evaluates competing stores based on retailing excellence and innovation, store team performance, customer service, space utilization, freshness and cleanliness.

Company Chief Operating Officer Dianne Hamilton was in attendance at the awards event earlier this week. She sees Halifax’s fondness for fresh, market-style shopping paired with the company’s specialized food expertise as the reason behind continued excellence in the company’s three locations.

“Our team is dedicated to delivering a superior shopping experience to our customers.” Explains Hamilton. “We understand what our customers want – and aim to create that superior experience every day through the sights, sounds and vibrant atmosphere of Pete’s. It all comes together in a special flavour that is hard to beat!”
