I grew up in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, did you know that? If you’re in the province and see me on TV or listen to me on the radio, I often share references and stories about growing up in the Parkland region. I grew up in the vicinity of the Parkland Mall and worked at several stores within that mall in my teen years, and my husband did too! We both have great memories growing up in the city, and share a lot of stories with our children too.
In March 2014, the Parkland Mall lost its grocery store and many residents were impacted. My mom lives within walking distance of the mall and she, along with many seniors living in the vicinity of the mall, has been waiting for the news of a new grocer coming to fill the space left behind.
So, when rumors started to surface of a new grocery chain not only coming to the city of Yorkton, but to the Parkland Mall, it created quite the buzz on coffee row. Then, when we learned it was Save-On Foods, already hugely successful here in Regina, I was thrilled to share the excitement with my family and friends back home.
And now Yorkton, it’s here! Save-On Foods grand opening is Saturday, June 17th – are you ready to save? Here’s a quick summary of why Save-On Foods is going to change your shopping experience in Yorkton:

Introducing the Save-On Foods Kitchen! This is one of my favorite areas at Save-On Foods because I’m a busy mom and some days I just don’t have my ducks in a row. The Save-On Foods Kitchen features freshly prepared hot and ready foods (chicken wings, anyone?) along with other delicious dinner favorites like salads, calzones, marinated chicken kabobs, steaks, breakfast sausages and so much more. Make a bee-line for this area when you visit and have fun trying out all the distinctive and savory flavours waiting!
The Save-On-Foods Grand Opening is Saturday June 17th 7am – 10pm! The first 500 customers that day will receive a free Nanaimo Bar (yum!) and Yorkton will get it’s very first experience with Darrel’s Deals – look for Darrell’s Grand Opening Deal: Triple AAA Western Canadian Striploin Steaks $5.69/lb (limit 2 per customer).
I’ll be there Saturday morning celebrating with the Save-On-Foods team and my hometown. Look for me on Facebook Live that morning for a sneak peek if you can’t make it in, or say hello if you see me there (I have a few surprises too!)
Pick up a latte or coffee at Starbucks To Go in store and enjoy your very first visit to Save-On-Foods Yorkton – a welcome addition in the Parkland.
