New measures while Covid-19 is active   Date: Tuesday 17 March, 2020
***Online Store Open For Business*** After much soul searching and rationalising we have taken the decision to close our store in Lucan for the foreseeable future. While new cases are still on rapid rise, we feel it is irresponsible not to close and we need to lead by example and reduce the opportunity for interaction for the sake of our staff and you, the customer. While canoeing is undeniably awesome, we are not an essential service and we need to keep the frontline staff in this crisis as much support by #stayingthefu€kathome. If we stay home, then you stay home (and so on, and so on) and hopefully we’ll beat this sooner than later. As a small, independent retailer (we’re not the big multinational conglomerate you thought we were) we can possibly survive 6 weeks. We cannot survive 6 months. As a relatively small island we are hopefully in a better position to contain the spread. Covid-19 will continue to kill more people but many will die without contracting the virus but because they can’t access “normal” medical services that are stretched to the limit. As a business we survived 2008, but for a business this is much worse. In 2008 it seemed sudden but we had time to adapt - now we don’t have time to waste. People had less money and less work but still went on “as normal”. We don’t yet know what the new normal is going to be but it’s going force us as a society to focus on what our priorities really are. We will still be maintaining our website and offering a “viewing by appointment service” to limit interaction. We will be providing help and advice by email and instant messaging and redirecting calls for remote working. I will also be making myself available to collect/deliver any essential items while the crisis is ongoing. So any genuinely needy individuals and charities please get in touch. Keep positive and keep paddling (in a socially responsible way), Colm Manager I-CANOE
