A proudly Canadian company with more than 110 years in the food business, Sobeys Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Empire Company Limited, headquartered in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. The Sobeys name is synonymous with quality and passion. Now we’ve brought it to liquor stores across Alberta and Saskatchewan. Here’s how: in 1993, the Alberta Provincial Government announced the privatization of the liquor retail industry. Since then, we’ve grown steadily to over 80 locations across Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia under the Sobeys Liquor, Safeway Wine & Spirits, Thrifty Foods Liquor, and The Local Liquor Store banners.
