Message to Our Customers

Dear OEVG Customers,

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our community and are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the health and wellbeing of our customers and employees.

The OEVG will continue to remain open to assist our community members to access groceries and basic needs. In response to the current situation related to COVID-19, we have implemented additional sanitization protocols within all areas of the store. We have also temporarily changed our hours of operation to 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends.

We assure you the preventative measures we have taken are with the best interest of our customers and employees, and that the OEVG, as always, remains dedicated to providing the Old East Village Community with access to healthy food options.

We thank you for your support and patience during this time.

A unique training centre, with a community grocer, at an incubator hub!

The Old East Village Grocer is wholly owned and operated by ATN Access for Persons with Disabilities, Inc. A training centre for clients with significant workplace barriers to gain employment skills in a real-life job setting, and a community grocer store all rolled into one.

We’re delighted to be part of such a vibrant neighbourhood at such an exciting time, and we try to be the best neighbour we can be.
We participate actively in community events, and we have a Community Advisory Council of neighbourhood volunteers that helps us stay engaged.

We take suggestions from our customers every day and turn them into new products and new policies that improve the store.
If you have an idea or if you’d like to get involved with our Community Advisory Council, please contact us.
