Since 1979, we have been synonymous with freshness, variety, health, and value. Since our humble beginnings as a bulk food store on John Street, our Doncaster location expansion, to the opening of the Vaughan location, our mission has been the same: to help you make healthy decisions at the best possible value.
We opened our doors more than 35 years ago, selling nuts, dried fruits, baking goods, snacks and other bulk food items at discount prices. During the late 1970s, the bulk food concept was new to Canada, and the public appetite for quality bulk food products at significant savings soon caught on.
From our original bulk food business, we expanded into vitamins and minerals, natural foods, fresh organic fruits and vegetables, natural cosmetic products, frozen entrées, specialty foods and more.
After 15 years of business at the John Street location, we embarked upon a major expansion in 1994. We moved from a 700 sq. ft. space to a 7,000 sq. ft. retail warehouse on Doncaster Avenue in Thornhill. In 2013, we opened our additional location in the Vaughan neighbourhood in response to the growing demand for healthy and affordable natural and organic products. These moves enabled us to expand our product lines and to accommodate a larger volume of eager shoppers.
However, the sales concept from our bulk food days never changed - buying product in volume in order to offer you the lowest possible prices. You will always find a rich selection of bulk, grocery, supplements, and beauty items to suit your needs and budget.
At Ambrosia, we believe that everyone deserves to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A diet of organic foods, supplemented with the appropriate vitamins, isn’t just for the wealthy. You won’t find the frills and extravagance here that you might find at other stores. Instead, that money is passed on to you, the customer as savings.
