COVID-19 Update

Dec 22, 2020

Following the Provincial Government's announcement of a province-wide shut down, our store will be closed as of 5:00 PM on Wednesday December 23rd, 2020. We will have a tentative reopening date of Tuesday January 26th, pending instruction from the province. This date could change if the province extends lockdown measures.

Our food bank will continue to run on normal hours starting Wednesday January 6 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and Thursday January 7 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM. 

We respectfully ask that ABSOLUTELY no donations are dropped off at our store during this lockdown. Please respect our neighbours who will be remaining open by not cluttering the parking lot with donations. Anyone caught leaving donations could be subject to heavy fines for dumping. 

The health and well-being of our customers, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We wish everyone the best of health during this difficult time.

God Bless,
SVDP Store Management
