Qi Natural Foods opens 4,000 square foot Bloor Street grocery store

Qi Natural Food has opened a new location double the size of its first.

The 2,000 square foot shop at Bloor and Christie expanded into a second, 4,000 square foot location at 572 Bloor West, called Herbs and Nutrition, just east of Bathurst in the old Payless Shoes space.

Owners Joanne and Yong Nam Hur have put their son, Ken, in charge of the new location.

"It's a full grocery store," says Ken Hur. "We're going to have lots more household items. We have a produce section, which we didn't have room for before, and a larger bulk section as well."

Though Hur says the renovation was not extensive, limited to re-flooring and the removal of some drywall and installing new lighting, the work took two months, before the store opened in December.

The Hurs signed the lease for the new space last summer.

Qi has another location at on Eglinton west of Bathurst.
