In 1965, Avondale Food Stores opened it’s first convenience store as an expansion of the dairy operation. Since 1931, Avondale has been a trusted name in the communities of Niagara, Hamilton and Haldimand.

What began as a small dairy operation and milk delivery service (Avondale Farms Dairy) has evolved into over 90 locally owned and operated convenience stores that are a testament to hard work, commitment, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit.
When Harry W. Stewart began delivering milk from the family farm on Stewart Road in Niagara on the Lake, it was the beginning of a legacy of providing valued customer service for generations to come.
Avondale is constantly growing and evolving to meet the needs of our community and continue to bring the quality and customer service we are known for. Products are continually reviewed and updated to keep neighbours coming back.
Avondale is more than a convenience store – now carrying prepared foods, general merchandise and clothing – Avondale truly is a one-stop-shop.
From horse and buggy to milk trucks, dairy deliveries to convenience stores, Avondale sincerely thank all our dedicated customers and loyal staff for helping to make Avondale a household name.
