Welcome to Sayers Grocery Store

Family-owned independent grocery retailer
Serving Apsley & area since 1976


We Are Here For You!

We are thrilled to be back serving our community after a 3-year absence caused by the fire (December 5, 2020). While we were down we reflected, analyzed and planned our vision of the new grocery store that would best serve our community. We hope you’re as happy as we are with the outcome! Thank you for showing us such support while we battled with the insurers and struggled through construction delays. Now it’s our turn to resume supporting you.

Meat Market

In addition to classic cuts (steaks, roasts, chops, etc.) our in-house butcher, Kevin, prepares a number of meats fresh in-store such as stuffed chicken breasts, sausages made from high quality whole muscle meats, kabobs, pork schnitzel and more. Custom cuts of your choice meats are also available upon request, provided reasonable notice.


Featuring high quality cured meats and cheeses, sliced to order, and an assortment of dips, salads, fine cheeses, fresh olives and more.

Garden Centre

In the Spring, we carry a variety of hanging baskets, patio planters and pre-bagged soils with new product arriving weekly throughout May and June.


We carry all the best local brands (including Kawartha Dairy, Empire Cheese, Swift Acres and Burkes honeys, Camp Canaqua maple syrup and more) in addition to your favourite name brands as well as our cheaper house brand (Compliments) in our dry grocery, dairy and frozen foods sections.

Hot Foods

Currently serving lunch and dinner daily from our fully equipped kitchen featuring a hot food service case, fry pit & sub shop. Order your food in-person or call it in ahead of time. Online ordering, where you can schedule your preferred pick-up time, is coming soon. Pick-up your food and cash out quickly at the dedicated cash in the deli, without going through regular grocery store line-ups, even if you have some items from around the store as well.


Fresh fruits and vegetables as well as packaged convenience products, house plants and flower bouquets are available year-round in the produce, with daily deliveries (excluding Sunday’s) to maximize freshness and minimize out of stocks.
In the Summer, we prioritize local produce when available. McLean Berry Farm in Buckhorn provides most of our local sweet corn and strawberries during the growing season. Lakelee Orchards for our stone fruit, including peaches and cherries, as well as pears. We also have local suppliers for zucchini, apples, wild blueberries and pumpkins to name a few.


We bake fresh bread and buns in-store every single day as well as a rotating variety of sweets and treats such as our famous donuts, chelsea buns, pizza buns and cakes.

Sub Shop

Hot and cold subs and sandwiches, made to order, are available daily in the deli. Try a signature sub like the Havana or Jersey Club, or a classic cold cut sub like Roasted Turkey or Smoked Ham topped the way you like.


Freshly ground brewed coffee by Muskoka Roastery, espresso drinks, teas, iced coffees and more are now available in our cafe. Some of our outdoor tables even have access to power so you can charge your laptop or cell phone while you’re enjoying your beverage.
