Sobeys Invermere

On Monday, Cassy  and I made a visit to our local Sobeys. Sobeys is a chain grocery store in Canada, which used to be known as IGA(Independent Grocers Alliance). 

In Invermere, tourists spot Sobeys as one of the first big stores they see up on a hill as they drive in to town. 

Sobeys is a big space to move around in, and has friendly staff that offer great customer service.  They are very much involved  in their community, as they donate food  to different causes around town.  Recently, they donated buns for a hotdog sale  to a fundraiser at our local middle school to help raise money needed to build an accessible garden for all students to work and learn in.

Sobeys is great  place to shop, so, tourists, before you start your amazing  vacation in beautiful lnvermere, B.C., stalk up on some party food here.   You will be  glad  you did!
