New halal grocer to replace old Steveston 7 Eleven store this year

Hayat Supermarket is expected to open in Spring 2023.
A new grocery shop will be replacing this old 7 Eleven store in Steveston.

A new business is taking over Steveston's old 7 Eleven location.

Hayat Supermarket, a halal butcher and grocery store, will soon be opening on Steveston Hwy and No. 1 Road. According to its Instagram account, it is set to welcome community members this spring.

The 7 Eleven store had closed down in 2022. It was one of the oldest 7 Elevens in the city and community members were saddened by its closing. A petition by a McMath student to keep the store open garnered more than 600 signatures.

As of now, no opening date has been confirmed for Hayat Supermarket.
