Ontario Provincial Lockdown Dec. 26,2020

Our business is considered as an essential service. However, we are allowed to go back to "Curbside" service plus deliveries. This means that you will need to phone or email your orders in. We will prepare your order and set it out or deliver it. No one will be allowed in the store or yard. The curbside delivery model has been developed by the Province so that there is no human contact. This means that we will not be able to help you load your order. Regarding deliveres, we cannot enter the household. This also makes it difficult to process debit or cash transactions as well.

Ontario Wood Program


The Ontario government has embarked on a new marketing campaign to promote the consumption of wood that is harvested in Ontario (rather than other places in the world). The new logo is a leaf. When you look for the leaf, you are choosing to invest in Ontario products which adds to the prosperity of the Province and supports sustainability programs. We buy Ontario wood whenever possible.
