October 17, 2018 / TheNewswire / Toronto, Canada – Organic Garage Ltd. ("Organic Garage" or the "Company") (TSXV: OG), an independent organic and natural foods grocer, is pleased to announce that it has successfully opened its fourth location in the Liberty Village neighbourhood of Toronto.

The 13,000+ square foot store is a significant milestone achieved by the Company as it positions itself to become one of Canada’s largest independent organic and natural food retailers. Organic Garage uses a dedicated real estate team to substantiate a potential location’s viability; the Liberty Village site was especially desirable due to its high population density (10,156 people per square kilometre) and attractive neighbourhood demographics, with 75% of the population between the ages of 25 and 54, and 50% of households reporting an annual income of $ 80,000 or more.

Organic Garage is committed to providing healthy, natural fare to consumers at the best price points within the organic food space. The Liberty Village store introduces new innovations such as the Company’s "Hand-Picked Partner Program", featuring three unique and distinctive prepared food concepts: sustainable take-out sushi from Cali-Rolls, kefir smoothies and parfaits from deKEFIR, and raw juice and whole food plant-based smoothies from Thrive Energy Lab. In addition to Organic Garage’s self-serve Express Brew coffee machine, the Company also offers an expanded draft selection of kombucha and cold brewed coffee from its zero-waste tap station.

"I am thrilled to bring Organic Garage and our mission of ‘Healthier Food for Less’ to the residents of the Liberty Village community. This location continues our strategic roll-out of new stores and we are excited to start on our fifth and sixth locations in the near future for the Toronto market", commented Matt Lurie, President and CEO of Organic Garage.
