I'm not sure this applies in Hamilton. Fortino's began as an 'ethnic' food market catering to the huge European population here. The Barn (new Metro) started as a stall in the farmers market, and I'm guessing they weren't selling pop tarts and coke. Denningers started in Hamilton and now has locations all over the metro area.

Immigration stats, and a walk around town, will show you that the new Europeans are Asians. A store that carries traditional 'Canadian grocery store' fare alongside foods catering to that massive immigrant population is actually a great recipe for success if Fortino's and Denningers are any indication.
