Thank you for your valuable feedback Mike Dean's Super Food Stores: Chesterville / Bourget / Sharbot Lake 🙂

Our bananas grew up in a sunny, hot tropical plantation, then travelled 7000km across the world to the produce market, then travelled the last couple hours to refill our banana rack across a windy, cold county road. Thank you Gambles Produce for delivering in snowstorm. And if you have to be out - drive safely tonight.
