Kiaro Elevates Port Moody

Kiaro Elevates Port Moody

Aaron KumarMar 18, '20

On Friday, March 20th, Kiaro is opening its fifth Canadian location in the community of Port Moody in British Columbia. While we had planned an event for  Port Moody’s first cannabis retail store, it is clear that as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, a different approach will be required for our first weeks of operations. As of right now, all of our store locations remain open following the guidelines and protocols put in place by Canadian public health agencies, in order to provide access to legal cannabis to each community where we operate.

We care deeply about our team members that serve you every day, we also care about your health and ensuring a safe interaction while shopping at a Kiaro store.

Kiaro is:

  • Increasing our cleaning frequency at all Kiaro locations with focus on high touch areas
  • Promoting enhanced hygiene practices with our teams, including frequent hand washing
  • Limiting the number of customers in our stores at a time
  • As ‘touchless’ a shopping experience as we can provide
  • De-Activating our bud walls and terpene bars from all stores
  • Mandating all employees returning from cross border travel to self-quarantine 
  • Mandating any employees in contact with a confirmed Covid-19, or those displaying symptoms, remain at home
  • Adhering to any directions provided from Canadian agencies to businesses and citizens 

Customers are asked to follow practices that are provided by Health Authorities across the country:

  • Wash your hands frequently 
  • Instead of shaking hands lets bump elbows or tap feet
  • Practice social distancing - please put one meter between yourself and other patrons
  • We request that any customer feeling unwell not shop with us at this time

In addition to all of these preventative measures, here is some advice from cannabis consultants:

  • Consume your own products individually - eliminate social sharing
  • Call ahead - some Kiaro stores may have reduced hours at this time
