Bonanza Flyer - Bonanza is a small Italian supermarket store based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Founded in 1973, the first location (no longer in operation) operated in Montréal-Nord, Quebec on Pie IX Street. From the late 1980s until the early 1990s, Bonanza operated at a peak of eight locations, but all except for the store located in the St. Leonard borough of Montreal were sold to IGA in 1997. Prior to the IGA acquisition of Bonanza locations, Buon Gusto was used as an in-store brand.
The Bonanza store brand sees the day in May 1973 as Les Marchés publics Bonanza – situated on Pie-IX Boulevard in Montreal’s north end. It is the initiative of Mr. Marcel Lalumière who, as proprietor at the time, decided to establish a supermarket that offered fruits and vegetables in large quantities on over-sized tables, as well as a vast variety of grocery products on well-stocked shelves.
Towards the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, the Bonanza label reached the height of its popularity, with eight stores throughout the island of Montreal and Laval. Since November 1997, all efforts are focused on one store situated on Jean-Talon Street East. Bonanza has retained the character that originally defined it as a unique supermarket where a profusion of goods can be found under one roof.
