Our reporter Clint Hoekstra and videographer Kristina Hoekstra were out on the scene to catch the opening of Edmonton’s newest grocery store, Carol’s No Frills.

Hundreds stormed into the freshly established No Frills location Friday morning, carts at the ready. Corporate employees paced the check out lanes as elderly customers from the retirement home across the street caressed the fresh lettuce and brioche buns.

Large gift bags were handed out to the first 100 customers. They included snacks, toiletries, clam juice, and a “Hauler” T-shirt.

Carol and her staff were unavailable for comment, presumably busy getting the new store up and running smoothly.

Check out the new No Frills at 6204 90 Ave NW in Edmonton.
