Summer is approaching at rapid speeds and after 14 months of staying indoors other than to grab essential items, things are slowly progressing towards opening back up in Canada. Staycations are the newest trend and as restrictions ease up, the excitement to reunite with loved ones is on everyone's mind. While this summer won't look quite the same as summer's past, there are a lot of thrilling trends retailers and wholesalers can look forward to focusing on when encouraging consumers to safely get back out there.
In many cities and provinces, ground zero for the Covid pandemic began in senior care communities across Canada. Because of their population density and focus on communal spaces, these types of residences have been hit hard.
One of the biggest obstacles to creating consumer confidence during the current coronavirus pandemic is the potential of virus-filled air. Whether it's a restaurant serving up Canadian comfort food or a retail outlet selling sweaters, every industry is facing a similar set of challenges.
