It looks like a lot of businesses are reopening. Restaurants in BC will be operating at a limited capacity again as of May 19. It leaves us with a very important question, when should we reopen and how should we do it? Like a lot of you, we want everything to go back to normal but normal might not be normal anymore. Ultimately, whatever the new normal is, we want to make sure that we’re keeping you and our staff safe.
Last week, we announced that we were doing an express window. Thank you so much to everyone who came to the store and made a purchase. We’re going to continue doing that for now. We’re offering local pickup for online orders and pre-arranged purchases as well as sales of masks and other protective items. Online shopping will also remain available with free shipping within Canada. But what should our next step be and when do we do it?
We’re considering that for our first stage of being open we limit customers to one or two people in the shop at a time. We would probably ask that you wear some kind of protective gear like a mask or a bandana and ask that you sanitize your hands before looking around. Would that put you off shopping or would you be glad that we’re taking precautionary measures? Which brings us to when that should happen.
When would you like us to reopen? Should we aim to be open when the restaurants reopen? Should we wait longer or be open soonWhen would you like us to be open? Should we aim to be open when the restaurants reopen? Should we wait longer or be open sooner? We don’t want to rush things but if we’re being honest, it’s been really tough to be closed. All of your online orders and support has been amazing and we appreciate it so much but it’s still been really difficult. So we would love to hear from you and find out what you’re comfortable with and try to make it work in a safe way.
