Saltspring Flagship Store
We are saddened to report that Cedar Mountain is closing its Ganges retail store until further notice.
In closing, we’re following recommended social distancing guidelines and taking personal responsibility for keeping our community, team members and loved ones safe. We don’t think that we can maintain an adequate level of sanitizing in a shop where people touch and handle multiple objects. We believe remaining open at this time poses a threat to both our customers and team members.
In the meantime, you may still purchase Cedar Mountain Studios pieces online. We hope you’ll continue to support us, and other small businesses in our community and yours.
Like you, we’re worried and anxious. We’re nervous for our family and friends and concerned about how this might jolt our community. However, we urge everyone to stay positive and get creative about how we might maintain our vital community connections when we can’t physically be together.
Fred Rogers famously said that his mother would tell him to "always look for the helpers" when a catastrophe occurred. "There will always be helpers," he said, citing medical workers and others who come into a troubled situation. "Because if you look for the helpers, you'll know there's hope."
We urge you to give extra love and support to our helpers. Send them a gift or a meal. Give extra-big smiles and tips to people working on the front lines in hospitals, clinics, at the fire station, grocery stores, and pharmacies. And, please check-in on your neighbors.
Remember that we’re all in this together and that we’re connected by love and that this too shall pass.
