About Us
Your Neighbourhood Grocer since 1998
Every city has its warm cultural corners. In Thunder Bay, one of the oldest and most famous is Westfort.

The community grew up around river traffic and the railway, a home for working families. They built their own busy downtown complete with clothing stores, banks, restaurants, a hotel, professional offices, pharmacy and a food mart.

Today, Westfort remains a self-contained shopping district with all the amenities. In fact many Thunder Bay residents will travel across the city to frequent its unique stores and shops.  In this enviroment Westfort Foods has thrived as being a leader in the community, while maintaining that friendly "small town" service our customers come to expect.  Established in 1998, by local business owners, we have supported many local events and charitable organizations.  Westfort Foods continues to provide stable employment for many families including several students who are pursuing higher education.
