Coming This Fall: New Avril Branch at Galeries Rive Nord

Cominar is very pleased to announce the arrival of Avril at Galeries Rive Nord in Repentigny this fall! This major project – representing an $8 million investment for the independent Quebec-based healthy supermarket chain – embodies the continuity of the relationship between Cominar and Avril, which began with the opening of their branch in DUO Centre Laval in 2018.


Founded in 1995 in Granby, Avril – which is rapidly expanding in Quebec – stands out with its wide selection of healthy, natural, organic, allergen-free, local and eco-friendly products, as well as its unique shopping experience. With a surface area of 25,000 square feet, this 12th branch of the chain will include 100% organic fruits and vegetables, groceries, supplements, and cosmetics all under one roof. In addition, there will be a food court with Avril's own brand of ready-to-eat products, specialty counters (prepared foods, rotisserie, cheese shop, bakery, pastry shop and gelato), as well as a 120-seat bistro and a 44-seat terrace.


“Avril’s arrival at Galeries Rive Nord contributes to making our shopping centres everyday destinations where our visitors can find a variety of products that meet their needs,” said Sébastien Dubois, Vice President, Leasing – Retail for Cominar.


Cominar welcomes Avril with confidence of its success!
