Family Day Grocers open?
Anyone know a grocer/supermarket/butcher that is open today somewhere between downtown Toronto and Oakville? I'm hoping to pick up a roast...
A tad late ......
This is what CityNews is saying is OPEN/CLOSED:
I would CALL first.
Family Day, Monday, Feb. 16th
Some federal government services including the post office,
TTC and GO on a Saturday schedule.
Some complexes - like the Eaton Centre, the Yonge St. strip and the Pacific Mall - are always around on the holiday because of their special status as 'tourist areas'. But unlike last year - when a lot of them stayed open - Family Day 2009 will see most of them with their doors closed. Here's a brief list of some of the bigger shopping spots in the city and their plans for Monday. The few that are open will likely have reduced hours, so check before you go.
Mississauga Square One
Scarborough Town Centre
Open & Closed
Some stores are open on Family Day, with varying hours. Others aren't. A lot depends on the one in your area. The No Frill's at 1591 Wilson Ave. will be letting you buy groceries on Monday. But the ones at Victoria Park Ave. or Eglinton Ave. will be shut tight for 24 hours. Check here to see if your store is one of those where it's business as usual.
Similar to No Frills - some places are open, but many others are closed. Check here to find out which description matches the store near you.
