Les 5 Saisons: the completely revamped Westmount gourmet food emporium reopens tomorrow

07:30 EDT Wednesday, August 14, 2013

MONTREAL, Aug. 14, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Les 5 Saisons, the well known gourmet food emporium located at 1280 Greene Avenue, will finally re-open its doors tomorrow morning. Its loyal clientele, which has waited two years to once again enjoy this Westmount fixture, can expect a totally re-invented concept. The store closed on May 20, 2011, to make way for the construction of 'Le 1250 Avenue Greene' condominium building. Les 5 Saisons store is on the ground floor of that building and is sure to impress even the finest connoisseurs.

Occupying some 10,000 square feet, 5 Saisons required an investment of 6.7 million dollars. Its Director, Jean-François Dugal, will rely on a team of no fewer than 85 employees to ensure outstanding service in all departments. The old store had 36 employees.

« We are delighted to finally be able to show the results of several months of work. There is no other store like it in Quebec, with a distinctive and sought-after upscale offering, and we are anxious to see our customers' reaction » said Christian Bourbonnière, Senior Vice-President, Quebec Division, Metro Inc.

5 Saisons is home to exceptional products of all kinds: meats selected according to the highest standards of quality, including Black Angus AAA beef, Kobe classic beef and Black Angus AAA rib steak aged for a minimum of 30 days; a wide variety of imported, Canadian or Quebec cheeses; organic or traditional local and non-local produce; fresh artisan and specialty breads; fish and seafood as fresh as it is tasty, including Balik smoked salmon; a variety of ready-to-eat dishes worthy of the finest restaurants, cooked according to the arrivals of the season using the very best ingredients; a smoothie bar, where smoothies and fresh fruit juices are prepared daily on-site; a café bistro that includes a great selection of Italian Illy coffees and Kusmi Parisian teas, to be enjoyed at home or on the terrasse providing Wi-Fi; fine pastries baked on-site every day by our expert bakers; not to mention the catering service, providing delicious dishes perfectly suited for business lunches or special occasions.
