Our Island Good producers and retailers are continuing to find innovative ways to ensure you can shop safely. Most producers are providing online shopping and many offer free shipping when you purchase over a certain amount of dollars. For example, Tide to Table (Walcan Seafood) offers free delivery of fresh seafood on orders over $50.00 and they also have gift certificates. Holy Cow Indian Eats is offering delivery of frozen entrees in the Duncan region with a minimum order of $30.

Other retailers offering a great selection of Island Goods that make unique gifts are Cowichan Regional Visitor Centre, Bough and Antler Northwest Goods and French Creek Collective and they are all taking COVID safe measures. For example, French Creek Collective, located in Campbell River is offering a small more exclusive holiday experience for groups of 4 to 6, where you have the opportunity to shop stress-free with your own bubble. Your group can book a 45-minute shopping time, where you can safely come and share time together.
