aritzia stores open

Aritzia begins to open stores across Canada and here's what's different now

Aritzia, the coveted fashion boutique known for their leggings and comfy-but-stylish sweat suits, has been eagerly preparing to style clients, and officially reopen its doors ever since it had to shut them due to lockdown restrictions.

The fashion company has come up with an extensive plan to safely reopen their stores across Canada, so no Canadian has to live without Tna bike shorts for any longer.

Aritzia says it’s planning on taking serious health precautions to ensure a safe environment for their customers, employees and community.

Some of their new health and safety measures indicated on their Instagram and website, include reduced boutique capacity, social-distance guide markers, hand sanitizer available throughout the store, and limited fitting room capacity.

Products and fitting rooms will also be sanitized after every use, contact-less payment will be mandatory, and the cash desk and debit terminal will be sanitized after each use.

There will be regular sanitation of surfaces around the boutique and protective face masks will be worn by all Aritzia workers and will be provided to shoppers upon request.

Each boutique will also have a nurse onsite.

Aritzia has made sure its processes are tweaked and updated to measure up to current safety standards but they insist its people have not changed.

The company hasn’t laid off a single employee during the pandemic and through their Aritzia Community Relief Fund - which has provided financial continuity to those who have been affected by their store closures, they have maintained customer loyalty as well.

Aritzia has already opened 10 Canadian boutiques including select Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton locations, with more said to reopen every week.
