If you’re a customer of the Extra Foods in downtown Maple Ridge on Dewdney Trunk Road, you might want to get in there in the next couple of days.

A while back, I mentioned that the store would be turned into a No Frills (another subsidiary of Loblaws,) and now that process has begun.

The store closes this Saturday, Aug. 13, to begin the renovation and switch.

“Our hope is to have the store renovated and opened to serve residents as a No Frills store, before the end of 2016,” said Loblaws spokesperson Tammy Smitham.
