A Nigerian consumer store, Ebeano supermarket, has opened a branch in Canada. Chris Bittle, a member of the Canadian parliament, for St. Catherines, was present at the opening.

Congratulating the supermarket on its opening, Mr Bittle wrote on his Facebook page, ‘’Ebeano Supermarket officially opened their doors on Ontario street in St. Catharines today with 25 employees, nearly all of whom are full time.’’

He described Ebeano as a true global market where food from around the world can be found.

‘’It was exciting to see so many happy faces shopping this afternoon for products that may be difficult to find elsewhere. Congratulations to Peters Andokari Ityohuna and the entire team at Ebeano Supermarket on your grand opening!’’

According to the company’s website, in 2019 David Ojei and Peters Ityohuna thought it was time to bring the Ebeano concept to Canada and offer something for everyone. According to the supermarket’s website, the store is located on 358-360 Ontario Street, St Catharines.

Prince Ebeano Supermarket is a partnership between two brothers, Mr Sunday Egede and Mr David Ojei. The partnership is based on a 50-50 agreement.

“The directors’ vast knowledge and experience in retail business have been deployed in the management of Prince Ebeano Supermarket since the agreement was signed in 2009”. The statement on the website reads in parts, “There are five outlets of Prince Ebeano Supermarket located in Abuja and Lagos”.

“Our passion for the retail market space is not just for growth and success but to build a viable workforce of youth that are gainfully employed and succeeding even while in paid employment” .

“This mission has no finishing line”, the information on their website stated.

The supermarket “promises to become one of the biggest employers of labour in Nigeria and West Africa, as we establish one-stop retail stores, to meet the daily needs of our customer with quality products in a friendly, courteous and professional environment”.
