The safety of our associates, customers, vendors, and the communities we serve remains our priority. We are following the latest guidelines provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), as well as local and provincial ordinances.
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols
In addition to regular daily cleaning procedures, the stores have implemented proactive cleaning protocols as recommended by the PHAC, which include frequently wiping down common areas and surfaces, such as door handles, shopping carts and baskets, keypads, and register counters.
Our associates and vendors are required to follow the most up-to-date local and provincial regulations.
Our associates are practicing social distancing, as recommended by the PHAC, and we continue to ask that our customers also follow social distancing measures, maintaining at least six feet between individuals — especially in the checkout lines where appropriate spacing has been marked.
We have installed plexiglass guards at cash registers in all of our stores.
Store registers are equipped with contactless payment through Tap to Pay with Visa and Mastercard.
Associate Health Screenings
We have implemented an Associate Health Screening Program that includes a self-assessment process for associates to monitor their health before every shift.
Support for Associates
We are providing support and regular updates to our associates. If you are an associate who has a question, please contact your manager or HR business partner.
