1903 marked the beginnings of the H.Y. Louie Company at the corner of Georgia and Main Street in Vancouver’s Chinatown.
For over 100 years, the family business has been nimble and adaptable with the energy and foresight to grow and thrive in the highly competitive grocery industry.
The name "Georgia Main" is a nod to our rich heritage and our beginnings.
