T&T Supermarkets, a Canadian Asian grocery chain, has opened a new location at the CF Fairview Mall in Toronto as part of an $80 million revitalization project by the mall’s owners/investment company, Cadillac Fairview.

The store, which opened in a space previously occupied by Sears, is the “first of its kind” in Ontario to offer Asian street food  including customer favorites like the Chinese Crepe, a savory beef wrap  as well as a walk-up counter for mall patrons to order easily, according to a news release.

The 36,000-square-foot location also offers T&T’s full range of products, including Asian snacks, produce, live seafood, bakery, skincare, gifts and in-store prepared foods as well as the retailer's collection of more than 400 private-label products.

"T&T is proud to bring an entirely new food experience to Fairview Mall," Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarkets, said in the release. "Together with Cadillac Fairview, we've been working hard for over four years to bring this vision to life, turning unused space into a culinary destination that will draw food lovers from all across the region."

As part of the grand opening celebrations, which kicked off on May 18, T&T offered multiple promotional deals throughout the week. T&T members who use the retailer’s mobile app could access exclusive offers from neighboring businesses, including Fuwa Fuwa, Hazukido, Xing Fu Tang Bubble Tea and Hana Don, through May 22.


"We're thrilled to welcome Canada's largest Asian grocery store to the centre," Daryl Clemance, general manager, CF Fairview Mall, said in the release. "We're constantly enhancing the merchandising mix to suit the needs of our visitors and future residents around the mall.”

The location also enables online shopping via and the app, while also allowing customers to earn T&T Rewards.

The Fairview location opened on the heels of multiple other successful T&T store openings, including a store in Montreal, which is the company's first location in Quebec, and a recently announced location in London, Ontario.
