Winona’s first modern supermarket is now open.

Metro Winona Crossing opened its doors to the public Sept. 26 at 8 a.m.

The 41,800-square-foot store features a wide range of grocery items, including fresh fruit and salads, artisan breads and pizza, organic and health and wellness products from a Nature's Signature outlet, a Nescafe coffee bar, pharmacy and more.

The store is part of the rapidly expanding Winona Crossing commercial complex at Fifty and South Service roads, anchored by Costco Wholesale.

Joe Fusco, Metro’s senior vice president, said the store includes a focus on local products through Metro’s Locally Sourced initiative.

“Throughout Ontario, we have seven regions,” said Fusco. “This is the escarpment region, so what we do is we partner with local suppliers, local vendors and we ensure that their product gets onto our shelves.”

The store also pays artistic tribute to local landmarks, including Puddicome Estate Farms, Battlefield House Museum and Park and Fifty Point Conservation Area.

Coun. Maria Pearson, who was among those on hand for the grand opening, said the store illustrates how much Winona has grown over the last 35 years.

“Winona was just a very small, rural community. And we were fortunate to have one little grocery store, IGA on Winona Road,” Pearson noted.

“I’m really thrilled to see your development here,” Pearson told Metro’s management team. “And the store is absolutely gorgeous.”

During the grand opening, Metro presented $1,000 grants to each of three area schools to support healthy eating habits through the Green Apple school program. Recipient schools include St. Gabriel, Winona Elementary School and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
