The day is finally (almost!) upon you, Saskatoon! For over a year now, you’ve watched Regina celebrate, and yes, brag about, the British Columbia based Save-On-Foods store in their city. While many times we comment on how Saskatchewan really feels like just one big city, it’s no fun when one city has something amazing while the other one waits!
Save-On- Foods coming to Saskatoon is a welcome addition to this vibrant community and as someone who has lived in the shopping area of Saskatoon for 8-years, I can appreciate how much of an impact this store will have to the entire community within the city of Saskatoon and beyond.
If you’ve never been inside a Save-On-Foods, you’re in for a treat Saskatoon! Here’s a quick summary of why Save-On- Foods is going to change your shopping experience in Saskatoon:
The Always Lowest Guaranteed promise! Save-On-Foods price checks the competition’s prices on 850+ items to make sure they’re the lowest. If, by chance, you find a lower price advertised elsewhere, they’ll even give it to you FREE! No need to shop at multiple stores to get the best prices; Save-On- Foods has you covered. You can find more info on this promise, and the products included on the Save-On- Foods website here!

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!
There’s so much happening on Save-On-Foods big grand opening weekend, and here are all the details you need to know:
The Save-On-Foods Grand Opening is Saturday July 15 th at 7am. This is when the store’s official opening is celebrated in Saskatoon. The first 500 customers on grand opening day get a free Nanaimo Bar (how Western Canadian is that?) During the grand opening event, customers will also be able to take advantage of their very first experience with Darrell’s Deals! This is a weekly deal from Save-On-Foods owner Darrell himself and I hear that Darrell’s kicking off the Saskatoon opening weekend with a special deal made for the BBQ!
When shopping during the grand opening event and for 14 days total in Saskatoon, customers also have the opportunity to WIN their entire grocery purchase FREE! I’ve witnessed this happen twice to shoppers and it’s a pretty awesome thing to see – can you imagine if that person was you?
As if that wasn’t enough to get you in the car, Saskatoon, there’s something pretty special happening on Friday, July 14 th at Save-On-Foods Saskatoon.
Marilyn Monroe wore her iconic dress at John F. Kennedy’s 45 th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden where she breathlessly sang “Happy Birthday, Mr.President.” Originally designed by Jean Louis and sketched by a young Bob Mackie, the dress features over 2,500 crystals and 6,000 hand-sewn rhinestones.
The iconic dress will only be on display that day from 9am – 8pm, so if you can’t make it out to the grand opening event Saturday, this may be a pretty awesome way to say hello to Save-On- Foods and get a photo of the dress. There’s a contest you can enter too!
