Christmas Day, Boxing Day – Open or Closed?

Open for Business on New Year's Day?

Thunder Bay – Heading into Christmas Day, and Boxing Day this year is a little different. Most stores will be closing earlier today so people can get home and spend time both shovelling out the snow and spending time with their families.

With the COVID-19 lockdown coming, the list of businesses that will be open is a lot shorter than usual through the holidays.

Government Offices will be closed through December 25 to December 28.

The Tim Hortons on Oliver Road will be open Christmas Day.

Banks will be closed December 25 through to December 28.

Thunder Bay Transit will run on Christmas and Boxing Day but on a holiday schedule. The same holds true for New Years Day. The City of Thunder Bay Transit is asking passengers once the lockdown happens to please travel only as needed.

Those who need it, the LCBO and Beer Store will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and looking forward, on New Years Day as well.

For those who forgot something grocery wise, SKAFS and George’s Market and the Shoppers Drug Marts will be open.

Canada Post will be closed on the 25th, and 26th. There will be no mail delivery on those days. Postal delivery is ongoing on the 24th as posties seek hard to get all the massive volumes of mail delivered. Keep your walkways clear.

Lori Paras at The Hub advises that they have entered their Christmas break.

This list will be updated. If your business wishes to supply an update send mail to
