Our History

Like every success story, the story of Sabzi Mandi Supermarket is an inspiring tale of determination and dreams. It started in the year 1983 when 21 year old Ravinder Narula arrived in Canada with USD 7 in his pocket along with the determination to succeed. Soon after his arrival, Ravinder started working at a Mac’s Convenience store in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. In 1991, Ravinder bought a South Asian store in Vancouver called Singh Foods. Vancouver was a new city for Ravinder, but being a strong-willed entrepreneur, he decided to fill the gap community was feeling due to  the lack of variety of South Asian grocery. His hard work, warm nature, and business wisdom quickly made him one of the most respectable names in the South Asian community.

Sabzi Mandi was established in May 2003 and fast forward to 2007, Ravinder found an opportunity with Sabzi Mandi to take his grocery business to the next level and so the story of Sabzi Mandi Supermarket with Narula family began. Ravinder has more than 30 years of experience in retail, and his business acumen has now transformed Sabzi Mandi Supermarket into a vibrant chain of stores.

He has always understood the needs of the South Asian community to cook their native dishes; dishes made by their mother, father, and grandparents back home. Therefore, over the years he has ensured that his customers can find spices and grocery items at Sabzi Mandi Supermarket to cook a warm meal just like it is made in their home country.

Currently, Sabzi Mandi has 12 stores soon to be 16 stores to serve you. We are the only stores in Vancouver Island with one in Nanaimo and one recently opened in Courtenay. We launched a new store in Pitt Meadows and our three new flagship locations in Abbotsford, Langley and our first location in Calgary, Alberta.

If you happen to be at the 72nd and 126 st location(head office) chances are you will find him either working in the store alongside his team or chatting with one of his customers. Ravinder has truly modeled the Sabzi Mandi Supermarket as a family grocery store.

His wife Varinder Narula heads the procurement of all the household items that are sold in the stores. Ravinder’s son, Aman Narula heads the operations, franchising, and future expansion of the Sabzi Mandi Supermarket grocery chain, and daughter-in-law Jasween Narula leads the customer service team, which ensures that customer requests and feedback are handled promptly.

Ravinder says, “For us, every customer is a family. When they step into any of our stores, we ensure they feel like they are visiting extended family.”
