COVID-19 – The SAQ changes its opening hours to give its employees a break on Sundays

March 21, 2020

For several days now, the SAQ has been operating with reduced staff due to preventive self-isolation and the closing of schools and daycare centres. The current situation and high amount of traffic in SAQ stores mean that employees are experiencing considerable fatigue and concern. The SAQ has therefore decided to change the opening hours of the store network to give team members time to rest. Effective tomorrow and for an indeterminate period, all SAQ stores will be closed on Sundays and will reopen their doors to customers at noon on Mondays. Monday mornings will be devoted to cleaning and sanitizing the stores and restocking the shelves so that team members will be ready to start serving customers again.
