COVID-19 Update

Howdy, y’all.

It’s been a minute.

A lot has happened.

Not much has changed.

But we DO have some news about:

  1. Hours: Closed for the Civic Holiday Monday, August 3rd
  2. Eat Ontario: Bounty bordering on obscenity is upon us
  3. Bottle Drive: August 12th: Proceeds go to St. Clair Supports the Stop
  4. Plastic Bags: Tired | Reusable Bags: Wired

1. We’re taking a much needed and well-deserved day-off on Monday

Some of us will watch the Raptors play the Heat at 1:30PM. Or do nothing. Some of us will definitely do nothing. Some will hop on social media and wonder where the day went. Whatever, please plan ahead because we won’t be here.

2. Ontario bounty in full effect:

  • We’re talking veggies: Heirloom & field tomatoes🍅, peppers🌶, collards, kale🥬, swiss chard, beets, lettuce, beans, eggplants🍆, zucchini, patty pans, corn, bunch carrot🥕, green onions, bunch radishes, celery, dandelion, broccoli🥦, cauliflower and potatoes🥔–it’s all happening!
  • Fruit more you’re thing?: How do fresh Ontario peaches🍑, nectarines, yellow plums, strawberries🍓, apricots, cherries🍒, blueberries, wild-blueberries (the kind you don’t bring home to mother), raspberries, sugar baby melon, watermelon🍉, and cantaloupe sound🍈?

3. Another Bottle Drive: August 12th

Proceeds will continue to go to St. Clair Supports the Stop, the program that pays local restaurants to cook meals for neighbours in need, distributed through Wychwood Open Door.

Please bring items for the Bottle Drive to the designated area outside at the front of the store.

Thank you in advance for not bringing them inside!

4. Plastic bag news

Now that it seems like surfaces are less of a problem we’d like to resume protecting the planet.
Beginning after the long weekend, we’d like to welcome back reusable bags and bundle buggies, with caveats!:
  • Please don’t use your bag or cart for shopping, use a traditional shopping cart🛒 instead. (Shopping carts help maintain physical distancing, among other benefits)
  • Please expect to do your own bagging (Sorry!)


Thanks. Please stay safe. And see you in the aisles.
