What's open today?
Dh is working, so I can't take the 3 kidlets anywhere *fun* like swimming (my two youngest are too ramy to take swimming by myself). I looked at the kwkids site and frankly the events are either too costly or too boring for a 3 and 4 year old.
I was hoping to get out to a store and pick up some sidewalk chalk since the sidewalks are clear now and the sun is shining. So what's open? Walmart, Chapters, Dollarama etc?Tracy momma to Angeline(14) Jack (8) Lyla (7)

I haven't actually looked into it but my understanding was most places would be closed today, sadly even the libraray which is our favourite place to go, is closed.
I bet Shopper's Drug Mart is open and they are likely to have sidewalk chalk. If not, I have a ton you can come and get.Melissa

I was under the impression that since there is Mail today most stores would be open. Not the bank and liquor stores, but walmart and stuff I thought would be and I'm actually counting on it!

All the stores are closed as it is a stat holiday.

see mail is federal and this is a provincial holiday
so mail is working because of that.

if you find things that are union, some of them haven't gotten family day written into their contracts to have today off so they are still working

This bites! Coming from Vancouver, EVERYTHING is open with the exception of Christmas and New Years day. Having everything closed is really hard to get used to!Mom to Bryan (15), Shae-Lynn (12) Thoren (6)
