Thrifty Foods has purchased the liquor store at the Westerly Hotel at 1590 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay.

The store re-opened under new ownership and management on Wednesday, Nov. 18, with new signage to be installed soon.

“Sobey’s Inc. was the purchaser and Thrifty Foods will be the banner,” said Erin Coulson, business communications specialist at Sobeys. “We expect that the store will continue to operate with the same team in place, as all six team members there have been offered positions. An additional team member, Crystal-Lynn Baucom, has been recruited to manage Thrifty Foods Liquor Store.”

The store is expected to be open during regular hours. Like all Thrifty locations, it will offer the AIR MILES Reward Program to customers.
