Labour Day!

Dear Fiestans,

We have a bit of news:

  • We’re closed Labour Day, Monday, September 7th, 2020
  • We’re extending our hours to 8 PM starting Tuesday, September 8th, 2020
  • Maintaining a dedicated hour in the AM

Labour is important. Labour laws are worth celebrating. Labour is responsible for the creation of many important conventions like weekends and 8-hour work-days.

Also, we’re tired and could use a rest. We hope you get some too.

If your Labour Day involves food, please pick it up prior. Happy Labour Day.

When we come back, thoroughly refreshed, we’ll have the energy to open just a bit later. Like, an hour later.

And we’ll continue to reserve the first hour of the day for customers who really can’t risk contracting COVID-19.

We’re not going to try and pretend that the pandemic isn’t affecting us all to varying degrees, directly and indirectly. Specific communities tragically disproportionately so. This week, Toronto numbers were on the rise. The school year is upon us. Working remotely has lost its novelty. Restaurants, retailers, and small businesses are suffering. The news from the south is distressing on the daily. Honestly, the litany of challenges this year continues to throw at us, surface, and dredge-up is documented well-enough in memes and the mainstream media alike.

We don’t need to dwell on it. But it feels disingenuous to pretend nothing’s wrong.

So here’s what we’re thinking. If you can afford it, maybe even more so if you can’t, we hope you get a minute (ideally more!) to let it all go this weekend. To forget the chaos and enjoy something simple. Some sun. A stroll. A conversation with someone about something that doesn’t make you angry, sad or scared. If you’re up to it, sure, try a new recipe. If you’re on a roll, eat on a restaurant patio or in a park.

Whatever you can manage, good luck. Stay safe. And see you in the aisles soon.
