We continue to be vigilant and are working extra hard to ensure the safety of our staff and customers at City Avenue Market. We have been making some small changes since our last update, and we would like to give you a quick summary of what we are doing and what you need to know in order to make your next trip to our stores safer.

Currently, all 3 City Avenue Market locations will remain open during regular store hours. For store hours, please visit our website at cityavenuemarket.ca

Please note the following things we have implemented:

  • In accordance with the latest BC province-wide restrictions, masks are required in all public indoor settings for those that are 12 and older.
  • We ask our employees who are sick to not come to work.
  • We ask that anyone who experiences COVID-like symptoms to not enter our premises.
  • We are asking all employees and customers who have travelled outside of the country or BC province to stay home for 14 days from their date of return and monitor themselves for symptoms of illness.
  • We are limiting the number of customers allowed into our stores at one time.
  • We provide hand sanitizer at our main entrance.
  • We have installed plexiglass dividers at our checkouts.
  • We have floor markings to show customers where to stand when lining up for our checkouts
  • We ask our employees to actively wash and sanitize their hands.
  • We will ensure physical distancing by directing customers to line up outside and remind customers to maintain that distance while inside our store.
  • We are increasing the frequency to clean high-touch surfaces, including bagging countertop, conveyer belt, pin pads, and door handles with disinfectants, as well as disinfecting our shopping baskets and carts after each use.
  • We’ve suspended bottle returns temporarily with the exception of Avalon milk bottles, Earnest Ice Cream & La Glace jars.


  • Stay home if you feel unwell
