I love it - it's my go to. No annoying crowds, never have to wait for anything, the place is pristine, etc!
Ever go there (Dupont & Christie Location) and wish they sold something specific that you might have needed though? I have a cat. I see they do not sell pet food.
There may even be other examples? If I have to go to Loblaws right next door to get the cat food, I may as well do ALL my shopping in one place.
(prices pending)

The whole conceit of Farm Boy is nothing is sold that isn't human food. No dish soap, no laundry soap, no pharmacy, no toilet paper, no pet food. All human food.

It carries with it some real advantages, branding aside, it means the store can be alot smaller, and quicker to get in/out of, while not cutting that deeply into the variety of food items available.

This is also achieved by focusing on store-brand product, carrying only a limited selection of brand names.
