Super Valu on Commercial Drive is dedicated to the local community. From helping with fundraising events for local sports teams to giving a helping hand to local families when they need it the most. Here are some of our stories:
One of our owners, Darcey Houser was watching the news and saw a devastating fire in the area left one family with next to nothing. He drove by the house later that day. A few days later he decided he had to track down the family and help with groceries. He met the lady he saw weeping on the news and gave her and her family $1000 vouchers. The return hug was priceless.
Here is their story: The Edwards-Cyrus family lost everything in a recent house fire on Renfrew. They had just moved here from Montreal and said they are amazed by the help they have received locally. We look forward to seeing our new friends in the store.

Imagine coming home from work at the end of a long week. You have some rent money in cash and expensive tools and are waiting for the last bus home. But you don’t make it home, you wake up in the hospital.
It was a horrifying reality for one man in Langley. When news broke and pictures were revealed of the attack, an employee at Super Valu wanted to do something for the family.
Together the team helped deliver boxes of fresh meats, produce and items to stock their kitchen while they recover.
The victim and his family had an outpour of support from the community coming together – fresh homemade meals to people even helping pay their rent. Thank you for letting us be part of such a caring community.
