C-stores deemed essential businesses in Ontario

C-stores are among the retail operations permitted to remain open in Ontario in the wake of the Province’s decision to close all non-essential businesses for 14 days.

In a list published by the government this evening, c-stores were mentioned specifically: “Businesses engaged in the retail and wholesale sale of food, pet food and supplies, and household consumer products necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation and essential operations of residences and businesses, including grocery stores, supermarkets, convenience stores, markets and other similar retailers.”
