Grocery Store

The location of the UWindsor campus and the various residence halls in Windsor is very good. There are several grocery stores that can be easily reached on foot or by bus when you need to buy food.

For daily needs (including medicine), there is a Shoppers Drug Mart about a 15-minute walk east of the campus on Wyandotte St.

About a 25-minute walk away at the University Plaza (at the corner of Huron Church Rd. and Tecumseh Rd.) there is a Food Basics, another Shoppers Drug Mart, a Canadian Tire store and a Dollarama. The Dollarama and Canadian Tire are very convenient, especially for basic items like kitchen utensils, hardware (like parts for a bicycle) or household goods.

There is also a Walmart Supercentre on Dougall Ave., but this is more than an hour's walk from the university, so to get there you would need a car or take a cab with friends.

There is also a store on Wyandotte St. right across from the CEI (Engineering building) called Giglio's Market. Here you can find mainly Italian food and very good sandwiches prepared at the meat counter.

On University Ave. is V-Desi, which is an Indian grocery store. If you want to buy Indian baked goods, Bhullar's Indian Grocery on Dougall Ave. near the Walmart is the place to go.

On Crawford, Ave. is the Multifood Supermarket, which sells mostly Asian foods. It takes about 20-25 minutes to get to this store or you can take the bus but it is definitely one of the best supermarkets for Asian food items.

There is also a new Korean grocery store called the Windsor Korea Market downtown at 550 Pelissier St. where you can buy Korean food and kimchi (which is really good). You can reach Windsor Korea Market on foot (about 35 minutes) or by Windsor Transit bus.

For African Groceries, there is AM Variety African Store at 1830 Wyandotte St. West or AFROCAN FOODS MARKET at 1033 Wyandotte St West Unit 1. Both grocery stores are close to the university, about a 15-25-minute walk away.

There are several Windsor Transit bus stops near the campus and you can also get a bus map and bus pass for the semester (although not for the summer semester) at the CAW Centre.
