MARKETSPOT NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
On March 17th 2020, Marketspot made the difficult decision to close both store locations, in an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19, and to protect our staff, vendors and customers. Furthermore, we have postponed or cancelled all of our spring events, resulting in great losses for our organization.
We are a small non profit association that relies on our daily sales to pay our operational costs. As you can imagine, we are among many independent retailers that has fallen on hard times.
We need your support. Here are some options in which you can support our community of artists and makers.
1. Purchasing a gift certificate to use at our store at a later date. Our Market Mall location will reopen as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. We will be open until January 2021. You can also use this gift certificate at any of our future markets.
2. Support us in our Call for Immediate Action to close the malls. The malls have decided to stay open during this time, putting the pubic at risk. We are joining our fellow YYC independent retailers in the fight to close the malls to the public, and absolve tenant rents during this time. We urge you to contact your MLA, take to social media, and contact the malls directly regarding this matter.
On behalf of the 120 local artisans in our shops, and the hundreds more in our community, we thank you for your support. We are confident that if we stand together, we will get through these difficult times.
