Ontario will go into another four week, province wide shutdown beginning on Saturday April 3, 2021. Unfortunately all personal care services will remain closed. We are anxiously awaiting the end of this time period, and can not wait to see you all again!
March 8, 2021
It has been many months now and we were wishful to think we would have been reopening this Tuesday March 9th 2021, however somehow we continue to stay strong as we await to enter into the Red Zone.
We are all glad to see Toronto moving forward into the grey zone which is good for the retail sector. Unfortunately, we can not reopen until we reach the red zone.
January 18th, 2021
After this past year of extraordinary challenges for us all, we would like to take this moment to say a huge and heartfelt thank you for making it through 2020 with us.
Since temporarily closing our doors on Monday November 23rd, 2020, we have been closely monitoring the directives and guidance provided by public health authorities.
At this time all appointments are cancelled and we will continue to be temporarily closed for services as per the 28 day lockdown. We will re-open as soon as the government deems it safe to do so.
Due to the growing concerns we will be operating on a limited schedule for curbside pickup until further notice.
Orders Are Filled On
