Westboro Villager: Changing seasons, challenging times

Submitted by the Westboro Village BIA. 

It has been just over a year since we were all asked to stay home and stay safe. It has been a challenging year for all, and the most challenging year any of our businesses have seen. The past year has been one of adaptation, from curbside pick up, online sales, increased takeout and delivery. The businesses in Westboro Village are working to keep you and their staff safe. Thank you Kitchissippi for continuing the support you have shown Westboro Village businesses in the past year. 

With the arrival of spring, we have a shift again. Retail doors are propped open with their capacities posted at entry, and we have one of the earliest starts to the patio season. With the season beginning in mid-March, it is a chance to be outside and support your favourite local restaurant. 

With so much uncertainty ahead, your neighborhood businesses will continue to adapt and take the measures to keep everyone safe. As a community, we miss the annual events and traditions, but are finding new ways to connect. We are looking ahead to the warmer months, and a reimagined Shop the Village in May. Please visit westborovillage.com for details and updates from the street.
