Since 1936, Galloway's has been Vancouver's place to discover healthy, hard-to-find food items found around the world. Tradition began when David Galloway upgraded his Gastown pushcart for a store on Seymour Street (followed by Robson, Denman, Davie, Pacific Center, Richmond). In 2003, Annie Muljiani purchased Galloway's from her father, Ali (who bought the store from Galloway in the 70s), and expanded into wholesale, computerization, bulk packaging and online shopping.
When shopping at the newly renovated Richmond store or the two-year-old Burnaby store, customers often reminisce about the spicy aromas and experiences of shopping with their mothers or grandmothers at the Robson Street store. Galloway's still sells dried fruit, nuts and spices, as well as 9000 products, from Indian chutneys to 350-plus spices, 27 wheat-free flours to a range of gluten-free foods. And Galloway's is still the go-to destination for chefs, food lovers, home cooks, moms and dads.
Galloway's central locations offer plenty of free parking and the Richmond store is minutes from the Canada Line. Online shopping means you don't have to leave home.
"Galloway's has always been my first choice to get any especial ingredient!" says award-winning Chef Hamid Salminian of Diva at the Met.
"With its quality spices and reasonably-priced, one-of-a-kind items, Galloway's contributes to Vancouver's gourmet food lanscape," says Julian Bond, Executive Chef and Program Director at Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts. "It's a place where future chefs at PICA get inspired."
