(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Temporary closure of a number of businesses is happening in order to slow the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19.
Party City, Mark’s, SportChek and Party City are closing down until April 2nd, or longer.
Canadian Tire will remain open on a reduced schedule, which makes sense since Canadian Tire sells essentials.
In two weeks, the closure of these retailers will be reassessed.
“Canadian Tire and our associate dealers have always been there to support their communities through emergencies and times of crisis, and for the last number of days, Canadians have turned to Canadian Tire Retail for the supplies they need to cope with the impact of COVID-19.
As we continue to adapt to the country’s fast-changing needs, we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep our stores open and support our team,
Closing our retail stores that are not as essential is the right decision, helping to limit the spread of the virus.”
– President and CEO of Canadian Tire Corporation Greg Hicks
