The Editor:

As you are all probably aware, the next 2 weeks are critical to the ongoing job we all have to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Ten days ago, we CLOSED Country Treasures Giftware to the public; Country Treasures remains CLOSED to the public until further notice.

 

Winchester BMR will continue to be open for business. Our hours, EFFECTIVE SATURDAY APRIL 4, are as follows:

Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

               We will continue to monitor our hours and adjust as necessary. 

 

Our staff continue to clean and sanitize throughout the store on a regular basis. 

We have installed Plexiglass barriers at all cashes and service desks to protect customers and staff where the 2-meter physical distance is not attainable. 

The floor area at cash is marked to assist with the 2-meter physical distancing. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE MARKINGS.

We have a running water sink station at the front main entrance, ALL customers MUST wash their hands with soap and water before entering the store.

 All other entrances including contractor entrance at door number two are CLOSED TO PUBLIC.

We ask that parents NOT to bring children into the store at this time as per health unit recommendations. Also, it is recommended that SENIORS and those with IMMUNE DEFICIENCIES NOT TO BE OUT at this time. 

We are all practicing physical distancing, YOU MAY BE ASKED TO STEP BACK.

We can arrange for product to be delivered to your doorstep. You can email your order to bmroffice@storm.ca or call store at 613-774-2700.

Local delivery fees have been waived on orders of consumable necessities, such as cleaning supplies, paper products, paint, plumbing and other basic household items. Regular delivery fees apply to lumber and building materials. Please contact the store for details. 

Country Treasures is running some Facebook Promotions, giving you the opportunity to purchase some of the décor items through this online platform with either delivery or pick up options. Payments via-E-transfer only.

We NOW have a PORTABLE DEBIT/CREDIT terminal which enables us to take payments in the parking lot from your vehicle and then have items placed in your trunk. This is ALL to assist in reducing contact and exposure to you and our staff. The order can be called in, to have ready for pick up. Lead time will be identified at time of call.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE HEALTH UNIT DIRECTIVES and STAY HOME, ONLY going out for those items you NEED. 

PLEASE do your window shopping online at www.bmr.co picking Winchester as your favourite store.

AGAIN, we wish to acknowledge and THANK our STAFF during this difficult time. They have worked extra hours and handled the extra cleaning details with a smile, while still working to get our customers the products they need. A huge THANK YOU and a VIRTUAL HUG TO YOU ALL.

THANK YOU to our customers for their ongoing support and patience.

Again, we wish to acknowledge ALL those essential service personnel that continue to provide many of the services and products we all have taken for granted and just expect to be there for us. 

To ALL those involved in the HEALTH CARE, MANUFACTURING, FOOD PRODUCTION, AGRI-BUSINESS, FARMERS, GROCERY, PHARMACY, CONSTRUCTION, and related services, to the POLICE, FIRE, AMBULANCE and TRANSPORTATION… WE THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!

Take care and be safe!
