We asked our local Downtown Abbotsford businesses to share how they are responding to COVID-19 and what their current hours/closures look like. If you have any questions for specific businesses, please visit their websites linked.

 

Strung Out On Beads

Bureaux Modern Mercantile

“Our storefront is now officially closed to the public and, despite understanding that shutting the doors was for the greater good, it was an emotional and heavy day for us as a team. ⁣We know this is temporary, but still feel the weight of the decision, as many other small businesses across Canada and the globe do too.
We’re going to take the day to digest our feelings a bit, but we’ll be around on Friday for those of you interested in placing orders or picking anything up curb-side. ⁣
Please email us at hello@shopbureaux.com or send us a message to make arrangements ~ we’re here and happy to accommodate the various ways we can keep you stocked in what you need while we’re apart 👍🏼⁣”

 

Duft & Co

“CLOSED: As for all small business owners, this is a tough decision but one that has to be made. We will be closing the Bakehouse (effective immediately) until further notice.

In light of the current, rapidly changing situation, we feel this is the best next step for our community, employees, and business. –

This is not a goodbye, just see you later! We can’t wait to re-open our doors and welcome everyone back, you are truly family to us. A big thank you to everyone from our team to our customers for being so supportive. Also big love to our neighbours who have also been closing their doors during this time. Well see you on the other side! 💪🏼”

Love, Jam Dance”
