— 160 NEW JOBS FOR ORLÉANS —
Cumberland Councillor Stephen Blais was pleased to welcome the Asian Supercentre to the community at its official opening this morning.
Located on Tenth Line Road, beside Goodlife Fitness, the Asian Supercentre is the largest multicultural grocery store of its kind and offers a wide array of options including Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indian cuisine – and much more.
“The Asian Supercentre is a wonderful addition to our community,” says Blais. “As Orléans continues to grow our newest grocer offers a uniquely diverse selection of ethnic cuisine in addition to some Canadian staples.”
The Asian Supercentre in Orléans will bring 160 new jobs to the community, 120 of which will be full time.
“Small and medium size businesses are vital to our economy,” adds Blais. “New businesses such as this one contribute greatly to the prosperity of Orléans and Cumberland.”
Minto played a critical role in the redevelopment of this site and in assisting the Asian Supercentre develop and expand their business in Orléans.
As the former Canadian Tire site continues to redevelop, a traffic light will be installed at the southern end of the mall making it safer for patrons to enter and exit the mall from Tenth Line.
“Since I took office in December 2010, over $100 million has been invested in infrastructure in Orléans and Cumberland, attracting jobs and making our community a great place to live, work and play,” adds Blais.
