The brand new Abbotsford Otter Co-Op at the Parallel Marketplace on 1888 North Parallel Road is set to host its official grand opening tomorrow (Monday) morning.

The celebration begins at the new location starting at 11 a.m., with a ribbon cutting event and several other contests and sales inside the store.

Anyone who shops at the new store that day can participate in a contest that will see one winner receive free gas or groceries for an entire year.

The grand opening event will also see the first 1,000 guests receive a free four litre jug of milk.

According to the Otter Co-Op website, the location will offer grocery, produce, meat, deli, bakery and a full service pharmacy. This 38,500 sq. ft. location also will create 85 new jobs in the community.

The grocery will be open seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and the pharmacy is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Otter is also taking over Parallel Marketplace’s Whatcom Wine and Spirits, as well as the Sumas Liquor Store, located at 1201 Sumas Way.

This marks the second Otter Co-Op location in Abbotsford, with the store on Mt. Lehman Road opening in 2019.
