Updated April 14, 2020: This post was updated with details about our online ordering system and closing on Sundays in April.
As a food store, Full Circle Foods will remain open as an "essential workplace" during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our supply chains remain strong and there is no shortage of products from our suppliers. We take the health and safety of our staff and customers seriously, and have implemented new policies to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including:
- Increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces
- Hand sanitizer available in various locations
- Limiting the number of customers in the store at one time to 3
- Social distancing policies and barriers for customers and staff
- Counter service in the bulk section (no browsing)
- Online orders for pick-up (shop.fullcirclefoods.ca)
Closed Sundays in April
To adapt to our new operations, our store hours (as of April 13th) are:
Mon - Fri: 10-6pm
Picking up online orders
Orders placed online at (shop.fullcirclefoods.ca) will be available for pick-up at the store. If you would like us to leave the package outside on our picnic table, please give us a call from outside the store when you arrive.
Orders placed by midnight will be ready for pickup the next day by noon or earlier. (No pick-ups on Sundays or Holidays, as we are closed.)
Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other. Social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak.
You will see these signs posted in various locations around the store:
Please keep a distance of 2 arms' length (2 metres) from other customers, and from staff, at all times. This means we will all have to move a little slower, take our time, and be patient with one another.
The Government and public health officials are urging all Canadians to:
- stay home unless it is absolutely essential to go out
- practice social distancing and good hygiene
To avoid crowds, we recommend shopping at Full Circle Foods during the following times:
- Mon-Tue: 10:00am - 2:00pm
- Wed-Thu: 10:00am-11:30am
- Fri-Sat: Do not shop
- Sun: Closed
If you are planning to stock up on groceries, please call ahead and make a special order for large quantities of products. This will allow us to plan our ordering and manage inventory better for everyone.
Look out for misleading health claims. Public Health Canada has not approved any product to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19. They have also not approved any disinfectant products with claims specific to COVID-19.
