winners face masks

Winners and HomeSense just made face masks mandatory in all stores in Canada

Don't forget your face mask on your next Winners or HomeSense run!

On Monday, TJX, the company that owns Winners, HomeSense, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Sierra, made it mandatory to wear a face covering in all of its locations in Canada.

In an update, TJX said that the only exception will be for young children and those who have a health condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering. 

This new measure is part of the company's larger initiative to limit the spread of COVID-19.

In addition to masks, the stores have limited fitting rooms, encouraged social distancing, offered hand sanitizer to customers, and enhanced cleaning protocols. 

The company is not the first to make masks mandatory in its stores. Walmart has also enforced a face covering policy at all of its 400 Canadian locations.

Many provinces, cities, and regions across the country have also made masks mandatory in all indoor spaces.
