In business since 1907, Sobeys is headquartered in Stellarton, Nova Scotia and has operations across the country. With over 1,300 locations in 10 provinces and thousands of wholesale customers, Sobeys Inc. is a dynamic and growing Canadian success story.

As Sobeys continues to grow and expand, one thing doesn't change - our time-tested approach to creating value for our customers and shareholders. Our success lies in over 100 years of superior customer service, excellent product variety and competitive operations.

These basic concepts began when Frank H. Sobey and his father opened the first Sobeys store and are threaded through every aspect of Sobeys businesses today. From the storefront to distribution centres to the head office, they filter through every level of the company as we strive to offer our wide customer base a rewarding shopping experience.

Our vision is to make Sobeys the most worthwhile shopping experience in the marketplace by accurately identifying customers' preferences and efficiently meeting their needs. It takes skilled and dedicated people to do that, and the kind of motivation that only comes by making Sobeys a company worthy of their commitment.

We are a diversified food distributor committed to growth in all our market segments by consistently exceeding our customers' expectations through the strength of our dedicated employees.

"The strength of any organization is the people involved." Frank H. Sobey

"I chose Sobeys because I enjoy the fast pace of retail and working with people on a daily basis. I have a lot of variety in my duties and regularly find myself presented with new challenges. I have received a lot of mentoring from the time I started here in a Part Time role and now enjoy being in a position to mentor others. I also enjoy the art of Merchandising and take a lot of satisfaction away from building creative and well presented displays that appeal to our customers. I see myself becoming a Store Manager and then progressing beyond."
Graham, Grocery Manager
