Message from Lakeland Co-op in response to COVID-19 pandemic
(April 3rd, 2020) – The COVID-19 pandemic is a global challenge that’s having a real impact on our community. At Lakeland Co-op, we understand the vital role we play in the community and aim to serve you with the items you need, when you need them.
“Our response to this pandemic not only considers the health and well-being of our Lakeland Co-op members and customers, but also our fellow Team Members,” said JP Stassen, General Manager of Lakeland Co-op.
“Our locations are critically important at this time, and we’re doing everything we can to ensure they stay open and accessible, while also protecting against the spread of COVID-19.”
We’re closely monitoring the impact of the coronavirus and our actions are guided by the World Health Organization, Public Health Agency of Canada and Provincial Health Authority.
Safe shopping initiatives
To maintain a safe environment and serve our members and customers, we’ve implemented the following actions:
• Exposure limits at the Home Centre and Agro Centre locations (maximum of 50 customers at one time in-store, maximum of 2 vehicles at one time in-yard)
• Cashier Shields at all three of our Bonnyville locations
• Social Distancing Floor Decals at all three of our Bonnyville locations
• Curbside Pick-up at our Home Centre and Agro Centre locations
• Enhanced sanitation and hygiene practices at all our locations.
During this period, please purchase only what you need and don’t visit our locations if you feel unwell or have recently travelled. These are not normal circumstances and appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to make products available and restock our stores.
Thank you to our TEAM
We remain committed to taking care of our team and work to provide them with the information needed to keep themselves and their families safe.
“Our organization wouldn’t be what it is without the team members we have on the front line replenishing shelves, helping customers and providing that friendly face our customers have come to know,” Alysha Wenger, Human Resources Manager said. “I cannot express my gratitude to them enough. Thank you. Thank you for your dedication, your positivity and your service through the thick of it all.”
Our role is part of the collaborative efforts of the entire community. We can’t forget that we are all together and will come through this challenge by trusting and relying upon one another.
We will keep you updated on any news or information as it arises. Please visit lakelandco-op.crs and our Facebook Page for all up-to-date information.
