A surprise or two there. The Campbell family done good with Thrifty Foods. When nanaimmo's breakfast television show New Day was on the air in the early 2000's, and I was the audio guy, Alex Campbell used to be a guest from time to time (Thrifty was our main show sponsor for a couple of years). Sharp and funny guy- cooked us breakfast as celebrity chef too. Probably a bit different now that it's under Sobey's wing. The Campbells were good corporate citizens.
