Welcome to The Country Grocer.
The Country Grocer has been serving Ottawa customers for the last sixteen years. We are a successful retail supermarket offering nationally branded products including the full line of Compliments™, Compliments Value™ and Signal™ products. Our customers also enjoy a wide selection of fresh products offered in our bakery, deli, meat and produce departments. The extension of our services into catering came naturally to us since our buying power and relationship with our suppliers enable us to work with the freshest products at very competitive prices. We invite you to visit The Country Grocer located at 729 Ridgewood Avenue in Ottawa to meet our staff. For your added convenience you can also shop via the Internet for pick up or home delivery. We were the first supermarket in Ottawa to offer this service on the Internet back in 1999. We trust that you will enjoy our food and appreciate our professional service and we encourage you to give us a try.
