Your Business Listing is an opportunity to communicate to your customers how you've adapted your operations during the COVID-19 crisis while adhering to the social-distancing regulations. Do your best to be clear about unique offerings and innovative ways you're reaching your customers.
Please also ensure your business listing notes your most up-to-date business hours. If something changes, contact us to ensure your information is current.
Your business must be following government guidelines to participate in this campaign. Please reference the alberta.ca/covid website for more information on your responsibilities as a business.
In addition to your Business Listing, you can add unique, relevant offerings to thingsthatareopen.com.
For example, you may be offering free delivery during specific hours -OR- you're offering online workshops rather than in-person or group sessions, in light of the current situation. Offers are meant to highlight new & innovative solutions to the way you're doing business, they are not meant to promote your brand or discounts that are unrelated to the social distancing regulations.
Your business submission could be removed if it is deemed low-quality or misleading. Reasons could include:
Your business name should be entered in Title Case and your postal code should be properly formatted (ex. T5T 4M2).
Images are displayed square, so you might want to crop prior to uploading. Skipped a mandatory field on your submission? Double check that your images are still attached to the form prior to resubmitting.
Keeping people safe is central to the campaign. Be sure to include clear guidelines on how you're keeping your customers and employees healthy. Online-only? People still want to know what you're doing to help, such as implementing a work from home policy.
Use a standard format when submitting your hours. Online-only? Say something like "Available to shop 24/7 online".
Tell us what you're doing to stay open during the COVID-19 crisis. Your community is here and ready to support your business.
