No Frills is a chain of supermarkets that specialize in offering the lowest prices available. To boost the impression of low prices, the corporate name, nofrills is written in all small letters. Nofrills is a Canadian company owned by Loblaw Companies Limited, which expands its operations as independently owned franchises.
There are now more than 200 franchises spread across the nine provinces of the country – none in the territories, yet. The first nofrills store was a converted Loblaws outlet slated for closure. It opened on July 5, 1978 in East York, Toronto. At the time the range of goods was very limited (only 500 products) and the customer service was minimum, however the store was determined to survive on the basis of deep discount prices. Inflation rates and the cost of food was at an all time high, so the timing was perfect. Nofrills was exactly what the public needed.
