Shop Intercity Announces Online Store Closure

Shop Intercity Announces Online Store Closure

28 February 2023, Vancouver, BC –  After serving the greater Vancouver community with restaurant-quality meat and seafood products for more than 2 years, Intercity Packers will be closing their online store, Shop Intercity, at the end of April.

For over 50 years, Intercity Packers Meat & Seafood has been a local provider of premium meat and seafood products across Canada. We have been a chef-driven company employing skilled in-house butchers who portion, grind and safely pack some of the best proteins available with locations in Richmond BC, Edmonton AB, and Montreal QC.

In 2020, our Richmond location endeavored into direct sales of Intercity products for local home cooks, foodies and aspiring chefs to enjoy a great restaurant experience in the comfort of their home. Shop Intercity was launched, and became a consistent source of high quality meat and seafood for curbside pick-up, or as an additional option, local delivery direct to the customer’s front door for added convenience. The pandemic offered the perfect time to offer direct delivery when grocery stores had restrictions and consumers were homebound.

Here’s a few comments from reviews about our products:

“It’s been a great experience for us to open up sales of our products direct to home consumers over the past couple of years,” says Brock Farrall, Director of Procurement and Marketing for Intercity Packers. “We were excited to bring unique and premium products that people in our area didn’t have access to through traditional grocery stores and wholesalers.”

Shop Intercity reached thousands of households during the span of the store operation. Some of the most popular products included Beef Wellington, Salmon Wellington, Ribeye Steaks, New York Steaks, Sockeye Salmon Fillets, and Lobster Tails.

Though the online store is closing, Intercity Packers will continue to be a vital part of the greater Vancouver community. We thank all Shop Intercity users for their ongoing support as we refocus our efforts back on our food service and retail customers. If you are a connoisseur of a great steak, raw oysters, perfectly prepared ocean fish, or a delicious burger, you can still enjoy our products at popular local restaurant destinations.
