State of Affairs

While most shops on 9th Avenue SE are now open to the public, we are continuing to fill orders for pick-up at the door only. As you are aware, COVID-19 cases in Alberta are still significant and have been increasing of late with the recently relaxed restrictions.


While our shop remains closed to the public, we are continuing with orders for pick-up only:

  • Orders can be placed over the phone or online, and we’ll let you know when they’ll be ready for pick-up. Typically we’re able to turn them around fairly quickly but that can vary day to day.

  • For telephone orders, payment with a credit card in advance is best.

  • When you arrive, simply press the buzzer on the intercom and we will come down as soon as we can…usually within a minute but there can be delays.

  • Unfortunately, we aren’t accepting personal containers or re-used bags for filling.


After maintaining a printed catalogue since early 1994, we have decided to switch to a digital version only. With the emergence of our online ordering site, and the PDF version of the catalogue a few years ago, we have found that the demand for the paper copy has fallen off.
