More than a few Ottawa businesses have been and continue to be affected by road closures. Bricks and mortar store locations that closed over the weekend on recommendation from Ottawa Police Services have remained closed today. All LCBO shops downtown are closed as well. You can help mitigate lost sales by shopping online, donating, or leaving positive reviews.
▪️On a good day, Highjinx, the neighbourhood social enterprise/vintage shop provides warm meals, paperwork-less assistance, and donated furniture to those who need it. They can’t open today due to road closures. Let Highjinx know they’re loved by signing up to volunteer your time, planning to donate gently used items, shopping for cool vintage stuff, or even giving money.
▪️As homes continue to sell for unattainable sums, Ottawa’s homelessness crisis continues. Throughout the pandemic Shepherds of Good Hope Ottawa branch has continued to provide help and essential services to the homeless people of this city. You can help by supporting the shelter with a financial donation.
▪️Pot and Pantry 613 carries trendy and classic homewares including many locally made items. They took delivery of some sweet aprons and oven mitts last week.
▪️Beaded Dreams Native Arts & Crafts carries gifts, face masks, books and journals, dreamcatchers, blankets, and craft supplies so you can make your own treasures.
▪️Education-oriented sex shop and bookstore Venus Envy carries books, toys, stationery, and more, with the goal of delivering quality products and information to all.
▪️The sale continues at Stroked Ego, where you’ll find discounts of up to 70% off winter items. Plus, you’ll get 25% off regularly priced items in the Valentine’s Day sale, by using the code “LOVESE,” but only until February 14th.
▪️Find seriously glamorous, Canadian made couture fashion and accessories at Justine Studio.
▪️There are deals and steals aplenty at the BBxCollection online shop. T-shirts and festive wear, midi dresses and pullovers, romper and tote bags are all on sale.
