Uptown Market, Saskatoon’s only downtown grocer closes

The Uptown Market, Saskatoon’s only downtowngrocery store has closed its doors after less than three months of operation.

The store, operated by British Columbia businessman Rexy Silva and his daughter Tabitha, opened its doors on April 5th of this year in the retail level of the 2nd Avenue Lofts. Saskatoon had been without a downtown grocer since Extra Foods closed their 3rd Avenue location in 2004.

News is difficult to come by on the closure but Lyndontells me he heard that the owners are seeking investors and hoping to reopen the store after some “re-vamping.” I’ve also heard that product selection and merchandising were both weaknesses for the store. Perhaps the Uptown Market can find a second life with some help in those areas.

Thanks to Ginger for the heads up on this.
