Our response to Covid-19

Here are some of the ways we are working to keep our customers, our suppliers, and our staff safe:

  • Staff have all been fully trained in proper food safety procedures, but further training has been completed specific to Covid-19 and its implications.
  • Staff are instructed to stay home if unwell and not to return to work until approved to do so. This is mandatory and done without reprimand or fear of losing their position.
  • Staff are consistently and continually sanitizing the store, counters, display windows, handles, tills, debit machines, screens, baskets and shopping carts.
  • We are offering all customers hand sanitizer to use as they enter and encourage them to use sanitizer after they are finished at the cash register.
  • The floor has been marked off for social distancing to visually help customers.
  • A plexiglass divider has been installed at the cash register to provide further protection.

We will continue to implement safety measures as appropriate moving forward and thank you for your patience as it may take a little longer to serve you.
