With the global rapid spread of COVID-19 we wanted to provide you with updates on what we are doing to protect our staff and customers at North Standard.
UPDATE - March 27, 2020
Due to the continued spread of COVID-19 and to encourage everyone to stay home, we have decided to cancel all order pick ups from the shop. Further, we (Pam and Frank) are now running the business on our own. We're sure many of you know what that is like right now, so please be patient with us! We might not be as quick as usual.
We will still offer local delivery if you live in the M6R Postal Code.
And we are still offering FREE Shipping on all orders over $50 across Canada.
The support we have received so far has been so wonderful and we're truly touched. Please continue to support small businesses during this difficult time. If you can't shop, we understand. Just spread the NSTP love!

March 17, 2020
We have made the decision to close our retail store for the time being. If we all want to keep this virus from spreading, we need to be responsible and take action. The lives of everyone in our community are more important than remaining open to the public.
Our online shop is DEFINITELY still open for business. Please shop online and support us! Orders will be shipped out as usual, however we will be making arrangements for pick up orders. We will be expanding our online offering and coming up with exciting promotions very soon. Stay tuned!
If you have already placed an order for pick up and would like to make arrangements, please email us at email@example.com, or wait for us to post designated pick up times.

The shop continues to remain open regular hours with the following measures in place:
- We are keeping the shop cleaner than ever, including regularly disinfecting all touch points and beyond. We are also regularly washing our hands.
- We have instructed our staff to stay home if they are feeling ill (Covid symptoms or not) even if this means we have to close the shop from time to time (BEAR with us, we will always update our social media with unexpected closures).
- We and our staff have not travelled internationally recently are not travelling any time soon.
If you are feeling sick, we would kindly ask that you don't come into the shop. You are welcome to shop online with us and we'll keep things as exciting as we can on the site for you!
If you are placing an order for pick up at the shop, please do not pick up the order if you are not well, or have a friend/family member pick up your order.
Please be safe and take care of yourselves, friends! Help out one another and continue to support small and local businesses. We need you now more than ever.
