Keeping the Memory of a Canadian Tradition 1919 – 2009


About Us

Dominion Foodie is an online magazine inspired tribute to Dominion Supermarket that had been founded in 1919 before being absorbed into Metro Inc.
Dominion Stores was once a national chain of supermarkets in Canada, which was still known as the Dominion of Canada at the time of the company’s founding. The chain was founded in 1919 in Ontario and was later acquired by the Argus Corporation. It was later sold to The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A&P), which ultimately restricted the chain to the Greater Toronto Area, with stores outside Ontario sold to third parties. A&P’s Canadian division was later acquired by Metro Inc., which rebranded the remaining Dominion stores to its namesake banner in 2008. (Reference: Wikipedia)
