DescriptionWhile coal fueled the growth of Stellarton, the Sobeys put food on miners' tables. J.W. Sobey started a meat delivery service in 1907, and his son persuaded him to open a small grocery store in 1924. Their family business would expand to more than 1,500 supermarkets across the country. Sobeys, now one of Canada's largest food distributors, is still headquartered in Stellarton.
