Our downtown is #OpenWithCare!


Downtown businesses are #OpenwithCare to safely welcome you back.

If you’re a Downtown Winnipeg BIZ member business, take the #OpenwithCare pledge and download digital assets to share on social media.

Look for new #OpenwithCare decals in the windows of downtown businesses. These businesses also have masks available free of charge (while supplies last). Check out the businesses that have taken the #OpenwithCare pledge.

When it comes to health and safety, everyone can play their part!

Here are some things you can do to keep you and others safe:

  • Avoid entering the business if you have a cough, fever or aren’t feeling well.
  • Wear a mask, covering your face and nose.
  • Maintain a physical distance of two metres from others.
  • Sneeze or cough into a cloth or tissue, or if not available, use your elbow.
  • Avoid shaking hands or engaging in physical contact.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • If possible, use touchless payment.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer often.

Supporting downtown businesses may look a little different these days, but there are still plenty of ways to support local:

  • Shop online. Many stores will ship to your home or provide curbside pick-up options. Take advantage of our 15 minute curbside pick-up locations (indicated by a bright pink painted curb).
  • Order delivery or takeout. Another opportunity to take advantage of our curbside pick-up locations.
  • Tune into online classes or virtual gatherings.
  • Share your support! Encourage your friends and family to support and tell them about the downtown businesses you love using the hashtag #OpenwithCare.
