Loblaw is expanding its online shopping experience, Loblaw’s Marketplace, and is looking to add hundreds of new sellers before the end of the year. Since launching the assortment from trusted third-party sellers in November 2019, the online shopping platform has seen significant growth, welcoming 150 reputable lifestyle brands, such as Henckels, Staub, Evenflo, and Umbra to its roster. The retailer is now ready to increase its offerings even further to meet the growing demand from its customers – and is calling on Canadian vendors to apply. 

With 10 million+ digital users and 18 million+ PC Optimum members, Marketplace vendors have access to one of the largest networks of brand-loyal decision makers across Canadian households. Not to mention the opportunity to be introduced to Canada’s largest and most engaging customer loyalty programs. Products are also listed online under all Loblaw grocery banners: Real Canadian Superstore, Real Atlantic Superstore, Loblaw, Zehrs, Maxi, Provigo, Fortinos, Your Independent Grocer and Independent City Market

In response to customer demographics and demand, Loblaw is aiming to expand its offering of items in the following categories: home & living, baby, pet, toys, sporting goods and consumer electronics, and is encouraging vendors selling these products to apply.

Vendors can apply to be listed on the platform at www.loblaw.ca/sell/.

On September 14, COPA vendors are invited to join a webinar to learn more about Lowblaw’s Marketplace. The call will take place between 2pm and 3pm and will be hosted through MS Teams.
