Empire Co. Ltd. says it’s launching its Voila online grocery home-delivery service in Calgary, Edmonton and the surrounding areas.

The expansion into Alberta by the company that owns Sobeys and Safeway follows the growth of its e-commerce service in Ontario and Quebec.

The grocer says it will offer nearly 20,000 products from Safeway, Sobeys, Chalo! FreshCo and more.
