Delhi Valu-mart to Close
The Delhi Valu-mart will be closing it’s doors March 28, as Loblaws will be buying out the Ruel family’s Your Independent Grocer store two blocks over. While details are not fully available, the two stores staff will be merged into the Main St. store and the manager of the Valu-mart store will be assuming the reins of the integrated unit. It was only three years ago that Loblaws bought the Valu-mart store from the Lampman family, in hopes of building a No Frills on the west side of town. After the plans fell through, it was announced the Delhi IGA store, owned by the Ruels, would be signing with Loblaws. Loblaws reassured the Valu-mart employees that the store would stand for at least two years. The merger will leave Delhi with only one full service grocery store. No word on what, if anything will be occupying the Valu-mart outlet once the store is closed.
