When it comes to food, Canada offers variety. As a multicultural nation, Canada offers all the foods you love, so you can easily feel at home. Fruit, vegetables, meat, bread, dairy products, non-alcoholic drinks and other household items are available at all the major grocery stores in Halifax. You can find some ethnic food items there as well. In Halifax, major grocery stores are often open seven days a week, some are open 24 hours. You can also find Asian, African, European and other specialty grocery stores in the city.

You can save money by using coupons and looking for deals in store flyers, which can be found at the grocery store’s entrance. Many grocery stores will also offer ‘price matching’ where they match, or beat, the lower advertised price at another store.
