DO NOT EXIT YOUR VEHICLE IN THE DRIVE-THRU

and DO NOT WALK INTO THE WAREHOUSE OR DRIVE-THRU AREAS.

- will be operating as a DRIVE-THRU ONLY for the first hour every morning as well as the last hour every evening to properly disinfect the entire store.

-  If you would like us to collect items in the store on your behalf, we can certainly do so. Please call ahead so we can have your items ready for you.

- If you wish to collect AirMiles, please read the number on the card out to staff so we may apply it to your purchase. We will NOT be handling AirMiles cards.

- We ask that any customers who are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms to call orders in and have them picked up by a friend, family member, or other means to avoid coming to the store. 

- Staff who can do so have been asked to stay home or to work remotely if possible; therefore we are functioning on BAREBONES staff. Please be PATIENT.
