Do all of our locations carry the same products?

All locations carry many of the same products; however, space and area differ meaning that sometimes different locations have different products. If there is a specific product that you are looking for, please call or email the desired location for more information.

Do we have a customer loyalty program at Ambrosia?

At Ambrosia, we believe in giving our customers the lowest possible prices every day. We work hard to make sure that our prices are lower than our competitors’, and it shows! Typically, we are about 20% less than other retailers. If the average points program saves a customer between 2%-5% on purchases, then Ambrosia is saving customers even more! For example, a points program might save a customer $0.50 on a product that is $9.99, while the same product at Ambrosia would cost $7.99.

Do we sell unpasteurized milk?

We will try our best to source a product for you. We require that customers pay a deposit on any products ordered that we do not regularly carry.

Which products in our store are organic?

All of our fruits and vegetables are 100% certified organic.

Our bulk bins contain a variety of natural and organic products. You can also buy organic, pre-bagged or commercially packaged versions of bulk bin items.

Reasons you cannot find a particular item in our store

Many of the health food products sold in our stores and throughout Canada are imported from the United States. With short notice, the Canadian government often disapproves of certain products coming across the border and discontinues further sales of the product within Canada. Furthermore, American corporations often discontinue product lines into Canada, as the regulations between Canada and the United States are quite different and selling to Canada is often not financially feasible.

For New Vendors
