KAMLOOPS – A grocery chain founded in the B.C. Interior will be changing it's name in the New Year.

The four Cooper’s Foods locations in Kamloops are scheduled to be converted to Save-On-Foods by mid-February 2016, according to Julie Dickson Olmsteadc with Overwaitea Food Group.

The Cooper's grocery store in Vernon and the two in Kelowna will convert to Save-On in the spring of 2016, she says.

Dickson Olmstead says Overwaitea, which owns both Cooper’s and Save-On-Foods, promises customers the same quality products.

“The conversion provides better value and consumer offers under the Save-On-Foods brand,” she says, adding it was decided the Save-On brand best suited the Thompson-Okanagan market.

There are currently 11 Cooper’s stores operating in the B.C. Interior. She says the intention is to eventually convert all stores, which ends the 58-year-old brand.

The converted stores will also introduce online grocery shopping in 2016 in the Thompson-Okanagan stores, something currently available at Overwaitea chains in the Victoria area, the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.
