Nearly 65 years ago, a few independent grocery retailers decided to form a buying group that would enable them to offer consumers products at prices comparable to those of major food chains. This led to the birth of Magasins Lasalle Stores Lt e, which soon became a force to be rec!oned with in this highly competiti"e industry. The leadership and tenacity of its members and e#ecuti"es, as well as their ability to adapt to change, ha"e allowed the $ompany to pursue its growth through mergers, ac%uisitions and inno"ations. Today, it is !nown as M&T'( )N$., an ac!nowledged leader of the $anadian food industry
