Over 1,000 team members at 16 Overwaitea Foods locations are known as “BC’s very
own food people.” With a great reputation for community support and the best customer
service in town, all locations continue to feature many of the unique retailing concepts that R.C. Kidd started in his first “Over-weight-tea” stores in 1915. Overwaitea Foods stores offer the best of both worlds, with a people-friendly atmosphere staffed by helpful team members, while featuring fresh products and an extensive range of value-priced staples. Overwaitea Foods remains the dominant retailer in small-town BC because the operating hallmarks of personal service, innovation and value established in 1915 are as vital today as they were back then.
