Friday is Remembrance Day and as a result, you can expect a very quiet morning for retail in Steinbach.

Dolly Fuchs is Operations Manager with Steinbach Chamber of Commerce. She explains that Remembrance Day is not a general or statutory holiday in this province. However, there is a specific Remembrance Day Act, which prohibits most businesses from being open between the hours of 9 am and 1 pm.

In Steinbach, Fuchs says some restaurants, gas stations and convenience stores will be open all day, others will open at 1 pm and then some will stay closed for the entire day.

Remembrance Day store hours in Steinbach:

Shoppers Drug Mart - open from 1 pm to 10 pm
Sobeys - open from 1 pm to 10 pm
Superstore - open from 1 pm to 10 pm
Walmart- open from 1 pm to 9 pm
Clearspring Centre - open from 1 pm to 8 pm
Canadian Tire - open from 1 pm to 6 pm

Meanwhile, the Jake Epp Library will remain closed all day Friday. 

The Steinbach Aquatic Centre will be closed from 6 am to 1 pm. It will be running a public swim session from 3-4:30 pm
