Celebrate Avondale Food Stores 50th
at Merrittville – Bring your Dog to the Races –
TUSA Mod Lite West Series Event in store 

Do you remember glass milk bottles … and horse and wagon delivery?

Merrittville Speedway will help Avondale Food Stores celebrate it’s 50th year in operation Saturday August 15th with a Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Event that will feature the second TUSA West Series Event for the Rev’s Full Throttle Powersports Modified Lite Division.

Before the Big Dogs take to the track for Feature Events for all 5 Divisions - Big Dogs … Little Dogs and all breeds in between have their own time in front of the crowd.

Race Fans and Race Teams alike are encouraged to bring along their dogs for the annual Best Appearing Dog Contest presented by Vansickle Pet Valu.

“For many of us in the stands and in the pits,” relays (Merrittville GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “racing is a family sport … and that family includes a dog … it’s their night to join in the fun and not be left home.”

Race Fans will be given the chance to vote on their favorites – the winner is the dog that gets the most cheers.

Josh Sliter won the first TUSA West Series Event back on June 20th’s Ontario Truck Driving School Night – his 5th of 7 wins at Merrittville to date – with his latest coming in this past Saturday’s Niagara Employment Help Centre Night.

The weekend will be a busy one with Series Events Friday Night at Ohsweken and Sunday at Humberstone as well.

In addition to the Modified Lite Special … Avondale Food Stores Night features the Pinty’s Delicious Foods 358 Modifieds, Rick’s Delivery Sportsman, Hoosier Stocks and the Van Raine Construction 4 Cylinders with their point races heating up as the Championship Chase winds down.

In 1965, Avondale Food Stores opened it’s first convenience store as an expansion of the dairy operation.  Since 1931, Avondale has been a trusted name in the communities of Niagara, Hamilton and Haldimand.

What began as a small dairy operation and milk delivery service (Avondale Farms Dairy) has evolved into over 90 locally owned and operated convenience stores that are a testament to hard work, commitment, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit.

When Harry W. Stewart began delivering milk from the family farm on Stewart Road in Niagara on the Lake, it was the beginning of a legacy of providing valued customer service for generations to come.

Avondale is constantly growing and evolving to meet the needs of our community and continue to bring the quality and customer service we are known for. Products are continually reviewed and updated to keep neighbours coming back.

Avondale is more than a convenience store – now carrying prepared foods, general merchandise and clothing – Avondale truly is a one-stop-shop.

From horse and buggy to milk trucks, dairy deliveries to convenience stores, we sincerely thank all our dedicated customers and loyal staff for helping to make Avondale a household name.

Enjoy the last days of summer by picking up some cool treats at your local Avondale.
