When your order is ready, the retailer will notify you of the date and time for pick up and designated location. Call the store to confirm your arrival, and an employee will deliver the contactless purchase to your vehicle.

Monitoring numbers: In addition to traffic counters tabulating how many people are in the mall, security are monitoring mall traffic and observing to ensure customers aren’t congregating in large groups.

Signage and guidance: Inside, signage, floor decals and door decals positioned throughout remind people to stay two metres apart and practice physical distancing.
