With the Province’s recent announcement to begin easing restrictions on retail stores with curbside entrances, the City is showing its support with the creation of curbside takeout/pickup locations.
Beginning Wednesday, May 20, 2020, City staff will be installing 15-minute curbside pick-up zone temporary signage in the Downtown core for residents and visitors supporting local businesses to use. Businesses interested in having a sign located in front of their establishment are to call 905-835-2900 ext. 207.
Since Main Street has no on-street parking, curbside pick up locations will be created in parking lots along Main Street, including:
- Lock 8 Gateway Park (stalls closest to Main Street W);
- 98 Main Street W (Visitor Information Centre Parking Lot);
- Old Humberstone Village Parking Lot (Main Street W at King Street);
- 105-109 Main Street W (Parking lot east of Melina’s);
- 175 Main Street W; and
- 230 Main Street W (Subway Parking Lot – two stalls closest to the street).
Residents and visitors interested in supporting local businesses are also encouraged to visit https://resilient.portcolborne.ca/ to learn which Port Colborne businesses are open and how they are adapting services. Port Colborne businesses are also encouraged to visit this website to add their business and service offerings.
Curbside pickup locations and a curated website highlighting local businesses are a few of the ways the City is responding to COVID-19 recovery to create a ‘Resilient Port Colborne’.
