At this point, more closures shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Canada essential services list was revised, and one of the stores that didn’t make the cut was Loblaws . It will now only be offering curbside pickup and delivery.
In an April 23 press release, the company stated that effective at business closing time, its stores would only be offering delivery or curbside pickup of online orders.
The announcement follows a new set of rules from the Government about how essential services can serve the public.
The Loblaws release also states that all stores will remain closed to the public for at least 14 days as per the new order.
Stores in all provinces will be cosed for at least 14 days.
As recently as April 2, the company had said that it would continue to keep its stores open to serve the public.
Canada has to take a hard line on social distancing rules, where bylaw officers are fining people for not giving others enough space.
