Super C is a Canadian discount
supermarketchain of 60 stores in Quebec. The stores average 44,166 square feet (4,103 m²) in size. [http://www.metro.ca/corpo/profil-corpo/alimentaire/superc.en.html] Super C offers 8,000 products including some 1,200 products from the Super C private labelbrand. In mid 2006, the 9 remaining Ontariostores were converted to Food Basics or Loeb stores.
Super C traces its origins back in the early 1980s as a supermarket chain operating under the name Super Carnaval. In late 1991, all Super Carnaval outlets were renamed Super C. It is unclear if Super C is legally Super Carnaval operating under a new name, or a different entity. Since then, Super C has expanded by acquiring in 1992 some
Steinberg'soutlets (through its parent company Metro). Super C has also built its own free-standing buildings as well as obtaining the lease of many vacant shopping mall anchor spaces. Only a handful of today's Super C outlets are former Super Carnaval grocery stores.
