Business Reopening Guidelines : Retail

Thank you for checking in. We hope to provide you with the most up to date information that we can find in order to facilitate a smooth return to opening.

Although retail was not mandated by the Gov’t to close, most of the retailers in Mount Pleasant have adjusted or adapted in some way or another due to company directives, or from good social awareness. Lineups and waits have been well managed, and we hope that they will continue to be.

We will update any additional Worksafe BC directives once they become available.

Consumer confidence is of the utmost importance at this stage. Please make sure your business has guidelines in place for the protection of your staff and customers before you open. Designate the number of people safely allowed in your store, and establish outside space to queue. Please work with your neighbour to make sure you are not overlapping.
