CFIB has been reviewing the new Ontario business restrictions and confirms non-essential businesses are allowed to continue to operate curb-side pick-up, delivery and mail order. Customers may pick-up pre-ordered items between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Here is the wording of the new guidelines:
General Retail (all other retail, including hardware stores, pet food, computer stores, etc.):
• Curbside pick-up or delivery only (in-person retail shopping not permitted)
• An item may only be provided for curbside pickup if the patron ordered the item before arriving at the business premises
• Sales must be exclusively made so patrons are not required to enter the indoor area of the business, including curbside pick-up or delivery
• Operating hours of 7am to 8pm
