T&T Supermarket is headed to the northern part of the island.

After announcing plans for a new supermarket in the Montreal area last month, the company confirmed in January that the new location will open in the borough of Saint-Laurent at 300 avenue Sainte-Croix by the end of 2022.

In addition, with more than 6,500 square metres of space, the company's first Quebec location "will not only be the biggest Asian supermarket in Montreal, it will be the biggest T&T Supermarket in all of Canada," said CEO Tina Lee in a news release.

Set in a former Loblaws store, the location is ideal not only for those who live in Saint-Laurent but also for all Montrealers, said Lee. Nearby is Highway 40, Highway 15 and the Décarie Expressway.

"I want to thank all the customers who reached out to us to extend a warm invitation, and who gave helpful suggestions on where we should locate our new store," she said. "This customer feedback gave us confidence that we would attract customers from all around the city, so it is important that we have great highway access."

The company is also getting an early start with recruiting and is looking for supervisors and departments heads. Recruits should "live in Montreal and speak French," says the release.

Training for these roles will take place in Ottawa, the nearest T&T store to Montreal. As the store opens, the company will hire over 300 people to join its team.

Known for stocking an array of Asian grocery items, from Filipino crab and corn soup to Korean gochujang sauce, T&T Supermarket is the largest Asian grocery store chain in Canada, with 29 locations across B.C., Alberta and Ontario.
