Essential Businesses in Westboro Village

Westboro Village has several essential businesses that will remain open during the provincially mandated shutdown beginning December 26th.  These main street businesses vary in size and are all providing employment in the community. 

From small-footprint store fronts such as The Piggy Market, Noor Food Market and the Natural Food Pantry to large retailers such as Superstore and Farm Boy, there are a lot of options to get your daily goods in Westboro Village.  

We encourage you to shop safely.   

All the pharmacies in Westboro Village will continue to be open to serve you. They are there for prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and advice. Like many other businesses, they may have reduced hours and limits on capacity.  

During this provincial shut down, many of the health professionals who practice in Westboro Village are open to care for you. Registered massage therapists, kinesiologists, physiotherapist and more are governed by their respective colleges and are working within the college’s guidelines. Be sure to check with each practitioner to see how they are operating during the lockdown. Each has health and safety as their priorities.  


For many of the businesses that are not considered essential, they may have online shopping, curbside pick-up, and delivery. Supporting these businesses now help to keep our main street alive and local staff employed during the pandemic.  

We have all been amazed by and are thankful for the commitment of all health care workers and front-line staff. We encourage everyone to be safe to help keep them and our community safe.
