Another COVID-19 update from Baker's

This week, the province of Ontario entered its second state of emergency since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of Thursday, we are under a stay-at-home order, in which we are being told not to leave our homes with the exception of essential trips.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Baker’s has been committed to following all public health recommendations, provincial and municipal legislations in order to keep our staff, customers and community safe. We remain committed to this effort.
Our store has been closed for in-store shopping since York Region entered Lockdown in December. We understand that not all of our competitors have taken this route, but we believe that our moral obligations preclude us from scouring legal documents in search of loopholes. We know that the majority of our clients appreciate our efforts and we are incredibly grateful for your continued support.
Because we are already operating at reduced hours, for curbside pickup and shipping only, these new regulations will not be impacting our daily business too much. We urge all who can to please stay home and take advantage of our free Canada-wide shipping. If you need something urgently, you may still place orders for curbside pickup. For curbside orders, please place your order ahead of time to reduce any potential contact between our staff and the public, so that we can stay healthy to continue serving this community.In this vein, we will no longer be accommodating fittings of any kind outdoors, including helmets and boots, until it is safe to do so again.
Carmen will no longer be offering saddle fitting appointments. If you are in the market for either a new or used saddle, we recommend you go to www.saddlesbybaker.com and fill in the client questionnaire form and Carmen will get back to you with options and next steps.As an industry, we can get through these trying times if we work together. The sooner we all heed to public health guidelines, the sooner we will all be out riding our horses and enjoying each other’s company.Until then, stay safe and healthy.
With Love,
Baker's
