Hello to the Shop Intercity Community.
Today we are celebrating the 1st anniversary of Shop Intercity. You may not have known that Shop Intercity was created in response to the effects of the pandemic. In all of Intercity Packers’ 49 year history, our business had not sold directly to the public. Instead, we were exclusively suppliers of premium proteins to hundreds of restaurants across Canada. Based on your incredible response and feedback you have given us, I would say gratefully, Shop Intercity is here to stay! This time last year, our store started with 8 bundle choices and thanks to your incredible feedback, we are now offering a rotating portfolio of over 100 high quality products to you.
Our business over time has been primarily the food service sector who have been devastated by the pandemic. Our company would not be here without them and we are so grateful for their business. These folks have been tremendously resilient through these incredibly tough times. This part of our industry needs our help when public health allows us to go back to restaurants indoor and outdoor. We certainly want to see our food service segment rebound in a profound way so they can all get healthy again.
So please support our restaurants and hotels when the time is right.
When you don't feel like going out and you want to release your own inner chef, we would love to be a part of your great eating experience at home. A very well known chef once said, “you don't have to be a great chef to make a great meal. All you need is to start with top quality ingredients.” That's where Shop Intercity comes in. Our team has been supplying the highest quality products to the best hotels and restaurants in our province for 49 years, and now you are able to buy those top quality protein products directly from us.
We have a lot of exciting things planned for the next year and look forward to serving you with our YES WE DO! service.
General Manager of Intercity Packers
