Real Canadian Superstore will require use of masks starting next week

Rule comes into effect Aug. 29

Real Canadian Superstore is moving to a mandatory mask policy starting next week.

The supermarket chain posted a letter to customers on social media Saturday morning advising that starting Aug. 29, masks will be mandatory at all Superstore locations.

“We appreciate your support as we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19,” the letter noted.

Previously, the store’s policy has been to follow any municipal guidelines that were in effect.

Superstore locations in Mission and Surrey both had employees test positive for COVID-19 last month.

Real Canadian Superstore has 28 locations in B.C.
