Social Distancing & Safe Shopping

If you are visiting our shops and eateries, we encourage you to practice safe social distancing by staying 2M away (two arm’s lengths) from others you meet in public settings. The Government of Canada has provided clear directions here: Social Distancing Practices

Shopping & Deliveries

Many of our 4th Street businesses are still open or have changed their business model to home-delivery service. Please contact our businesses directly to inquire about the options available to you. We continue to encourage you to #shoplocal and support small businesses safely.
