Whether it's a new skill or old hat, local Vancouver shops are adapting their digital presence to connect with their customers during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Without stepping foot in a store, online shoppers can view goods, make purchases, and have them delivered to their doorstep—sometimes just as quick or even quicker than mass online retailers. That said, please be patient as shop owners adjust to the ever-changing regulations, and support local to keep your favorites alive during this difficult time. Ready, set, retail therapy!
Some shops are primarily using social media to communicate with customers as they adapt—for these, the most used platform is linked at the end of each listing. Listings with websites and phone numbers are linked in the bolded store names. If you have or know of a shop to add to the list, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and share your experiences and new finds on social media using #SupportVanWA. We are all in this together.
