Valdi?! oh how the memory fades…
Valdi…is there a contemporary of it today?? If not we should bring it back.
Wow!!! Many of my family used to shop there… I still remember all that killer boxes they had (kind of like the way No Frills is)
I remember a Valdi store here in Sarnia, there used to be one on London Road close by Burger King. Fond memories to save as much money on your grocery order, up to 25%.
Marriott call centre is in the Valdi building now. Right next door to Fabricland.
One of the Valdi’s that we had in London, which was on Dundas Street, has been a used furniture store for years now. Father & Son Furniture, has been a blight in London east, or EOA, for as long as it’s been around.
The other one, which was on Hamilton Road, was broken up into smaller businesses in the plaza where it was located.
There was a Valdi’s at Ernest & Southdale too which is now Ring-a-Wing and a bunch of vacant storefronts.
There was a Valdi on Whatncliffe rd (now – bback pawn)
we were having a talk last week with another oldtimer and describing Valdi’s but none of us could remember the name until it popped into my head a few hours later…the one on Wharncliffe South in London was near us.
