Loblaws Opens at Maple Leaf Gardens.

Maple Leaf Gardens has re-opened this week. Loblaw Companies Ltd. has developed a flagship supermarket to take advantage of the historic nature and appeal of Toronto's iconic hockey arena.

The store is 85,000 square feet and has an impressive array of choices. There is a 2,000 square foot kitchen, and ACE Bakeries, recently acquired by Loblaw (TSE: L), has an in-house factory to ensure everything is fresh and readily available.

Monuments to the Gardens and historic moments include tributes to The Beatles, Winston Churchill, Wayne Gretzky, Elvis Presley, and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The company states that they are not sure where they are going next, but this type of conversion is something that they might complete again in another city. To be sure, it is very good press.
