Uxbridge, Ontario: Vince’s Market has been named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, one of 45 companies in Canada to receive this award in 2017.
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, presented by Deloitte and CIBC, recognizing excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process, but only the best are awarded this prestigious designation.
“It was quite an intense application, but with the amount of planning and effort our Team has put into our stores over the last few years, we felt it was time to benchmark our organizational goals with the rest of the country,” stated Giancarlo Trimarchi.
Giancarlo is a Partner in Vince’s Market and, in his role as CFO and Controller of the organization, felt it was the proper time in their company’s development to make the application. Along with Carmen Trimarchi, President and CEO, and Brian Johns, Chief Operating Officer, Vince’s Market has grown from a small roadside fruit and vegetable stand to a small chain of community oriented grocery stores focused on offering a personal and fresh shopping experience.
“We are so incredibly proud of our Management and Supervisory Team as well as every Team Member at Vince’s. Our commitment to Quality, Fresh, and Convenience is delivered at every level by our Team,” Trimarchi continued.
“We are honoured to receive this award. It validates and underscores our growth plans, as well as having new Team members recognize we are a great company to be a part of. Success breeds success, and we are excited for what the rest of this year will bring,” states Partner, Brian Johns.
Vince’s Market is scheduled to open their fourth location in Tottenham, ON this fall, and will be growing their talented pool of staff by an additional 130 team members this calendar year.

This Easter weekend, when you are making shopping decisions to serve your family and friends, there is another great reason to shop at Vince’s Market.
Vince’s Market is now the first major grocer in Canada to serve customers with fully biodegradable bags – free of charge.
“We are a grocer that is built upon serving our customers fresh, quality food in a convenient way. Further, we are committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve. Giving harmful plastic bags away to our customers to carry their groceries was not meeting that expectation,” noted Giancarlo Trimarchi.
As you can guess, biodegradable bags are more costly then the traditional plastic bags, but, Vince’s Market is remaining committed to not charging customers for their bags.
The bags are produced out of a bio hybrid resin comprised of 70% sustainable and renewable plant starch that creates a new molecular structure that is 100% biodegradable in approximately 15 months.
Mr. Trimarchi concluded, “Our stores are open each day this weekend, and we are looking forward to introducing these bags to our customers. Seeing the long term positive impact this decision is going to make in the smaller communities we serve is going to be worth the investment.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Town of East Gwillimbury Approves Vince’s Market Sharon Re-Development
Sharon, Ontario: On Tuesday evening in East Gwillimbury at Town Council, the recommendation that was made earlier in the day to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-Law to allow for the redevelopment of the Vince’s Market Plaza in Sharon was unanimously passed by the Committee of the Whole.
This two-year process saw strong public consultation/engagement through an open consultation process with residents and neighbours.
It was staff’s recommendation to approve the application, built upon meeting the Town’s Official Plan to ensure balanced growth, in supporting residents’ everyday needs by providing retail and commercial uses within local centres.
“I am very pleased with the positive outcome”, noted Carmen Trimarchi. “When I began here in 1986 taking over from the Vince family, it was with future growth in mind. Hopefully now residents will also have an opportunity to satisfy their banking needs, and other such retail expectations, without having to leave town.”
The re-development of the site includes a completely brand new Vince’s location built from the ground up, that will continue to focus on fresh departments, as well as having the new zoning to allow for banks, retail, service and personal service shops. Vince’s Sharon location will remain open and serving the public during renovations.
While this stage is now finalized, Site Plan Approval along with issuing building permits will complete the process. “We are looking forward to having the new community plaza completed in order to serve the residents, toward the end of 2017”, cited Trimarchi.
