Letter from Mr. Peter Simons to our community

18 Mar 2020

To all our loyal customers, devoted employees, and members of the Simons family, 

Since Simons was founded, the well-being of our employees and customers has been our main concern. During this extremely volatile and challenging time for all of us due to COVID-19, I want to assure you that I am doing everything possible to ensure the security of our community. Since February, we have taken a number of measures, including cancelling business trips, implementing heightened hygiene practices in our facilities, reducing our business hours, and reducing non-essential contact.

I'm writing today to inform you that we are currently closing all our store locations in Canada for an indefinite period. However, our website ( as well as our essential services will remain open in order to serve you and answer questions.

During this uncertain and rapidly evolving time, we will continue to make decisions and take all the measures necessary to assume our responsibilities as partners in our communities. This period requires sacrifices from each and every one of us and I thank you in advance for your resilience and trust.

In closing, I wholeheartedly commend all those working in the healthcare field for all of their sacrifices and effort, as well as their families for their support. It goes without saying that following the guidelines issued by the federal and provincial governments is the greatest gesture of respect we can show them.

Let's take care of one another in order to maintain our health and security, and we will emerge from this stronger and more closely united.

Thank you,
Peter Simons
