Bulk food bins with food and scoops in them

Originally known as Urban Bulk Emporium, the store was started in 2015. The first owner was inspired by her father and grandfather to become the third generation in her family to run a bulk food business. With the dream of creating a space in Leslieville where people could shop for organic, healthy foods in bulk and at a fair cost, she opened what became a neighbourhood staple and well-loved local business.

Fast forward four years to 2019, with a new owner, and the store was relaunched as Urban Bulk & Refill. In addition to carrying bulk and specialty foods, the store is now also dedicated to providing a wide selection of refills for soaps, household cleaners and personal care products
