The much-awaited new branch of Young’s Market is now open at 2188 McPhillips in Winnipeg.
This new addition widens the service that the other two branches at 397 William Avenue and 1000 McPhillips are now providing to the community.
According to Linda Eng, one of the major owners of Young’s Market, this third branch is larger than the other two stores, not only in terms of the store’s shopping space and parking lot, but also in the ethnic products that it carries.
“We offer more variety and assortment of items from around the world – Philippines, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and China. Absolutely more amazing finds and amazing deals!
“We are sincerely grateful for the many years of support from our loyal customers. As we look to the future, we promise to uphold the standards our customers have come to expect from us, which is to surprise them with amazing finds and amazing deals at Young’s, your ethnic food store!” added Linda Eng.
She also confirms that all three Young’s Markets together will continue to serve their loyal customers.
Pilipino Express asked three Young’s Market’s customers about the opening of the new branch.
“Young’s new branch is so comfy for us kasi isang kembot lang we’re there na. We will also be able to walk to the store especially during summer. And I like that the parking (lot) is huge!” said Carmelita G. who lives on Watson St.
“I can go to Young’s easily (on my own) because it is now in my neighbourhood. And I don’t have to ask or wait for my husband to drive me (to go there),” said another customer who lives in the Garden City area.
“I like the new location of Young’s Market because I can now save time, there’s less traffic to encounter. I can save money, too, on gasoline expenses. I have been their loyal customer for many years. Thank you, Young’s Market, for being here in my area,” said Rose B. who lives in the Amber Trail neighbourhood.
The business hours of the new branch are Mondays to Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. And Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Young’s Market – Your Ethnic Food Store
A Winnipeg tradition since 1983
For over 40 years, the Young family who owns Young’s Market has served the immigrant community in Winnipeg by providing a wide variety of affordable ethnic foods and products.
The first location of the popular ethnic food store was established in 1983 on Notre Dame Avenue. In 1986, it relocated to 397 William Avenue where it became one of the immigrant community’s major sources of multicultural foods, ingredients, grocery items, and dry goods.
In the late 90s and early 2000s, as the immigrant population significantly grew in Manitoba, particularly in the greater Winnipeg area, the need to expand to serve the community better became apparent. In 2004, Young’s Market’s second branch became operational at 1000 McPhillips St.
The Young family’s stated company vision and mission: “Back in the day, shopping for ethnic ingredients was both hard to find and rarely affordable. Being an immigrant, raising a family on a tight budget was quite the challenge. A problem that needed a pragmatic solution. Our founder had the vision to supply ethnic ingredients at affordable pricing. To provide high value and low prices by being a low-cost operator.”
