COVID 19 Pandemic
March 31, 2020

We as a locally owned Co-op want to let you know that we are working diligently to maintain the safety of the public and our staff while we continue to provide such an essential service. We have implemented many sanitary procedures and continue to stay up to date on Government advisories in order to act as quickly as possible in this fast paced changing environment.

We understand that the Covid 19 Pandemic has caused unexpected stress for our Members. It has also applied added stresses to our Team Members while they strive to meet the needs of the community. It is our sincere hope that we as a community will support each other and make sure that all Members receive the same service. We ask that as a community we come together in following the safety procedures put in place to avoid the spread of the virus through communal contact.

While shopping please read the notices posted to help us keep you up to date on new procedures put in place. Please have patience with our Team Members as we work as quickly as possible to update the notices.

  • Look for notices posted indicating the limited items
  • Please respect these limitations to help ensure product is available for as many customers as possible
  • There has been a limitation applied to the amounts we are able to order on certain products and this will affect the limitations we apply in the store.
