Our ideal fit is excited to be part of our growth, helping us continue to seamlessly navigate change while increasing our market share.

Growing up in British Columbia, the family root cellar was a place in our homes where we could always find good quality, garden grown, fresh & preserved foods. Our family owned market operates with a local focus, always buying from as close to home as possible to provide the communities of Victoria with the same.

We are more than your average grocery store, and our leaders are more than your average store managers. We’re a family business, and we’re selective about who joins us. Our bottom line is that we care a lot… about the products we offer, our customers, and our Root Cellar family. We put that care into action by providing a comprehensive leadership salary and benefits package with great benefits (including vision + dental), a bonus structure, development support and opportunities, and a 20% discount in our stores.
