Shopping Local

Located on Erie Street, just east of Parent is La Stella Supermarket. One of a dying breed of local grocery stores.

Opened in 1969, it is one of Windsor’s best kept little secrets. Their selection for items like pasta and italian cheeses, are second to none, and their prices on par with the big chains.

A great history of the business can be found here, along with a local blog post on the subject too.

Remember to support your local businesses, the grocery stores like La Stella and Giglio’s out by the University, and the small hardware stores like Potomiski’s and Canada Salvage are what makes this city tick.
