Travel By Horizons (1418 Tower Ave Suite 1)
Hours: Open with limited hours. Office closed to public, but staff available by phone or email.
At this time more than ever we are here for our clients, we will be available anytime for those who are still on their trips or returning. Our office has temporarily closed to the public for the safety of our employees and their families, however, we are still available by phone or email.
Many of our clients were set to travel or were in the middle of their trips during this time and some we had to bring home early. This is an especially hard time for the travel industry. For those who did not use a Travel Professional, I am sure they have found out how hard and how many hours they have wasted trying to navigate through all this and get ahold of the airline, cruise line or travel company. Those that supported their local Travel Professionals only had to stop in, make a call or send an email. We then advised them of their options so they could make an informed decision and we handled the rest for them.
UpNorth Sundries – (1424 Tower Avenue)
Though many of our small business neighbors had to make difficult decision to close theirs temporarily, but for us who have made commitment to remain OPEN we make sure to disinfect and deep clean our storefront (as well as washing our hands after each transaction) more often these days for customers’ health and safety as we do not offer curbside service and therefore we would greatly appreciate all your help to encourage the community to be willing to shop in our stores.
At UpNorth Sundries we have hand sanitizer handy on the checkout counter and we also have effusion lamp going every day to sanitize the air inside our store (perhaps we’re the only business establishment who has and is using this product).
