The Thrifty Foods liquor store at the Westerly Hotel is moving across the street to the strip mall, next door to the Thrifty Foods grocery store. Officials at Sobey’s Inc. said the new location is expected to open by spring.
A building permit with a value of $450,000 has been issued for the project.
Sobeys Inc. owns about 1,500 stores in Canada under retail banners that include Safeway, IGA and Thrifty Foods.
In 2015, Sobeys purchased the liquor store at the Westerly, with Thrifty Foods as the banner.
