COVID-19 Response
March 18, 2020

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a global challenge that’s having a real impact on the communities Discovery Co-op serves.

Your Discovery Co-op is taking steps across all locations to help our communities stay safe and healthy. We’re saddened by the news of all those who have been affected and we want to be diligent about doing our part to prevent more impacts.

All Discovery Co-op locations are cleaned and sanitized daily as part of normal business, but all locations have increased the frequency of cleaning, including shopping carts and baskets at food stores and pumps and door handles at gas bars. Discovery Co-op food stores and gas bars have temporarily suspended food sampling, and food stores have closed the hot and salad bars. Pre-packaged hot and salad items will be available for your convenience. Bulk bakery bins will not be stocked, but our bakery staff will be happy to serve you what you need and package it for you. Plexi glass screens are being installed in all departments to help limit exposure between guests and staff.


We are also ensuring that available preventative resources are made available to both customers and employees.

Your Discovery Co-op is also working with employees to ensure that they have current information on prevention so they can stay healthy or stay home if they are feeling ill. These practices are informed by Health Canada and the World Health Organization. We’re also encouraging all Discovery Co-op guests and members to keep informed on prevention by visiting Health Canada, WHO and other helpful resources.

Given the guidance we’ve received from these agencies, as well as our own preparedness efforts, we believe that we’re taking the right steps to ensure that your Discovery Co-op stores are safe. We’ll also make sure that our prices on all essential items remain stable throughout this challenging time.

Thank you for being a loyal Discovery Co-op customer and member. We’ll continue to update you as the situation evolves.
