Price Chopper is a Canadian chain of discount food stores owned by Sobeys Inc.. Price Chopper is not related to chains with the same name in the
United States or New Zealand. In the late 1990s the chain acquired additional locations after its former parent company, Oshawa Group, was acquired by Sobeys. On May 12, 2010, 8 Price Chopper
locations in Brampton and Mississauga, Ontario, were converted to FreshCo stores. FreshCo aims to cater to budget-conscious,
multicultural customers, and Sobeys Inc. plans to convert more of its 87 Price Chopper locations to the FreshCo format.
