Food Stores Open Tuesday

All stores selling basic foods, such as supermarkets, convenience stores, and pharmacies are permitted to open tomorrow, January 21, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in St. John’s. This excludes bars, restaurants, fast food chains and outlets.

Residents please be prepared to purchase enough food for your family for 48 hours. Future opportunities to open food stores during this State of Emergency will be evaluated and communicated as conditions warrant.

The city continues to work diligently to clear the snow with the help of the military, other municipalities, and the province. The State of Emergency will be lifted once it is safe to do so.

When travelling to the store please exercise extreme caution, motorists must drive slowly and watch for pedestrians.
