ABOUT SKAF'S JUST BASICS
We have been servicing the Current River area in Thunder Bay, Ontario since the summer of the year 2000. Our goal from the beginning was to provide exceptional grocery service and quality to our customers while offering competitive pricing. We take pride in our independence and we work extremely hard so that our customers continue to come back. We shelf a complete, grocery store, inventory. This way if you're just picking up the basics or if you are shopping for everything you need, we have it all!
The owner, Robert Skaf, has been in the food retail industry since he was 10 years old, living in Beruit, Lebanon. He moved to Canada in the 70's and soon after opened the Skaf Food Store grocery chain in Northwestern Ontario. The grocery stores came to an end in the early 90's, leaving Robert and his family to settle elsewhere. It was with great pride and accomplishment that Robert was able to re-open a grocery store in Thunder Bay and with that pride comes hard work and dedication so that all customers will shop feeling satisfied and taken care of, like they are a part of the family.
Today, Skaf's Just Basics remains open with a recent renovation and expansion of the grocery store as well as the addition of the everyday merchandise store, Skaf's Bargain Zone. Robert is now also joined by his two children, Joseph and Jennifer.
We are family at Skaf's Just Basics and we hope that our friendly customers and amazing staff feel the same way!
