We have had to put some changes in place for your safety and ours but we are confident we can all work together to make this as easy a transition as possible. We know that some of our new procedures and ways of shopping may feel different at first and we thank you for understanding we may need to figure some things out as we go. But be assured, everything we do is with your safety and ours as the number one priority. 

We will continue to provide the services we have been for the past few months including reduced shipping rates, curbside pickup and free local delivery in Barrie, ON.

In Store Shopping - Limited Occupancy

Our store is open for you to shop with us! Due to the size of our store, we must limit the number of customers allowed in the store at a time to ensure physical distancing practices can be met, for your safety and ours. We have also put the following procedures in place:

-Pre-screened employees for symptoms related to COVID-19

-Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting practices

-Reduced store hours

-Access to public washroom is not allowed at this time

We ask of you:

-Please be patient if we ask you to wait outside the store! For the most part, customers are able to enter the store as they arrive to shop with us However if we have a higher number of visitors than usual, we may not be able to allow immediate entry for everyone. 

 We recognize the weather is unpredictable and it may be uncomfortable to wait outside. If this is a concern for you, please call the store ahead of time and speak with an associate about best times to visit. 

-Wear a mask the duration of your visit. We are happy to provide a disposable mask if you do not have your own!
