Happy Holidays, everyone!
All across Canada, restrictions have been issued to reduce the spread of COVID-19 transmission related to social interactions and travel. This means that we have to embrace the fact that Christmas, New Years’, and other holiday celebrations will look different this year. Here are some considerations to keep in mind to help #stopthespread this holiday season:
Shop online! Save yourself some time and do your holiday shopping online. Not only does this reduce the risk of contact when you’re doing the shopping, but it also helps reduce the risk of transmission between you and the gift’s recipient. Shopping for gifts online means that you can have the gifts delivered to your friend’s and family’s doorstep. Win-win! Check out our Holiday Special sale family PPE packs.
Gather all your family virtually! For those of us who only get to see our extended family on holidays, why not do so virtually? Sure, it’s not the same, but consider this: you won’t be stuck having small talk with an uptight cousin or a judgemental aunt because everyone will be in the same (virtual) room- together.
Get take-out for your holiday dinner! One upside of the new restrictions this year (for some of us) is that we no longer have to prepare an entire holiday feast for a big crowd. Or better yet, there a ton more options for restaurant-prepared holiday meal kits. This holiday, why not support your local restaurants by ordering your holiday meals from them. We are now offering 20% off extra on all sale products during Boxing week.

Be responsible and stay within your core bubble this holiday season to help stop the spread of the virus. The following restrictions in regards to Christmas and holiday celebrations are taken from the BC government website:
- You must not host gatherings with people outside of your core bubble or household
- Do not look for loopholes or excuses to gather
- Consider hosting virtual parties and religious services
- Unwrap gifts over Zoom or Skype
- Grandparents who provide regular childcare for their grandchildren can spend time together over the holidays
- If you must travel for essential reasons, review the health and safety precautions
