Canadian Tire Corporation will reduce operating hours at Canadian Tire Stores and temporarily close its other retail stores, including Mark’s/L’Équipeur, SportChek, Atmosphere, Party City, Pro Hockey Life, National Sports and PartSource.

The temporary closure will be in effect from March 19th until April 2nd, at which time operations will be reassessed. During the closure period, full and part-time employees will be paid.

Gas+ locations will also remain open, with regular operating hours.

“Canadian Tire and our Associate Dealers have always been there to support their communities through emergencies and times of crisis, and for the last number of days, Canadians have turned to Canadian Tire Retail for the supplies they need to cope with the impact of COVID-19. As we continue to adapt to the country’s fast-changing needs, we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep our stores open and support our team,” said Greg Hicks, President and CEO, Canadian Tire Corporation. “Closing our retail stores that are not as essential is the right decision, helping to limit the spread of the virus.”

Canadian Tire continues such as with the enhanced cleaning of stores, encouraging strong hygiene practices among team members, and making hand sanitizers and wipes available at all workstations and gathering spots, such as lunchrooms and service waiting areas. To help protect and support elderly and more vulnerable customers, many Canadian Tire Associate Dealers are offering reserved shopping hours or setting aside inventory for pick-up.

“During these temporary closures, our customers can still shop our Canadian Tire family of companies online, however, as online orders increase, it may take us longer than usual to ship your items, and we ask for your patience,” added Hicks.
