Welcome, Pilot Butte!

Welcome, Pilot Butte!

We are thrilled to officially welcome A & D Fresh Market and the Pilot Butte community to the TGP family!  After months of anticipation, A & D Fresh Market will open their doors to the Pilot Butte community this weekend.

Jumping at the opportunity to invest in a young and vibrant growing community just outside of Regina, Denise Kilback shares, “my husband, Allen recognized, back in 2013, a need for local services in the town of Pilot Butte and so we developed a 30,000-square foot commercial retail mall.” The mall, now home to a pharmacy, local café, daycare, restaurant, liquor store and doctor offices, has attracted a lot of essential services to the community. A & D Fresh Market, a 4,500 square-foot, full service grocery store is the latest addition to the mall, and will be co-managed by Denise and her daughter Arielle.

“We have been in business for over 30 years and now to see our grown kids come beside us with our businesses has been very humbling.  We have two daughters and a son, each one of them contribute in different ways—our daughter Arielle in particular will be co-managing the A & D Fresh Market.”

Young and spirited, Arielle will bring a lot of personality to the business and to the entire team at A & D Market. She’s determined to offer the community a refreshing shopping experience without having to travel to the big city.

Denise and her family are pioneers to the farm-to-table movement. As a pork wholesale, they’ve raised hogs for over 20 years and have worked towards making farm-fresh products more accessible. “We had a storefront which allowed us to bring in local products from small business owners and create our made-from-scratch, value-added products that our customers still talk about today,” adds Denise.

Recognizing that there will be some bumps along the way with introducing a brand-new grocery store, Denise comments, “When you decide to become a business owner, the risks and rewards come hand and hand. You don’t consider there to be anything you outright dislike because you are passionate about what you do.” As business owners, they take tremendous pride in being a local alternative and get inspired by seeing the impact they can have on others.  

Together, Denise and Arielle will make an incredible mother-daughter duo, and we have every bit of confidence in the success of A & D Fresh Market!
