Hundreds of shoppers lined up in the frigid weather for the grand reopening of the Loblaws grocery store on Isabella Street.
The store was closed for four months for renovations.
It's one of the few grocery stores in Ottawa's downtown area.
The new store is modelled after the look of the Loblaws store at the Maple Leaf Gardens.
It includes a 15 feet high cheese wall and more than 60 organic items.
The first 250 shoppers recieved a $10 gift card.
The Loblaws store in Isabella has been a fixture in Ottawa for 55 years.
