Many of our Downtown Courtenay businesses that were closed are reopening in the coming days.
We ask for your patience as our small businesses put new plans and protocols in place to ensure your health and safety. If you are unsure about visiting a store check their social media or give them a call to find out what they are doing to keep you and their staff safe. If you aren’t ready to get out and about yet we understand and many of our shops are still offering curbside pick-up, appointments, and online shopping options.
Thank you for your incredible and continued support of our local businesses.
