Supporting each other while we are apart. Home delivery, Online orders and Sound advice (by phone or email)

We know you are currently flooded with updates on how every business is handling the challenges presented by the Covid-19 spread but we hope you will take this quick read on our strategy to support each other through the difficult road ahead.

Firstly we feel it is an appropriate strategy to minimize interaction and as such will be shutting down store hours to an appointment only basis effective March 18th until April 7th. During this time we will continue to ship online orders, answer phone and email inquiries. We will focus our efforts on helping you find the right equipment and providing home delivery!

Below is a list of ways we are working to support you during this time and minimize the Impact!

  • Our Store will regularly receive a more thorough cleaning of all touchpoints, Door handles, debit machines, etc. as well as providing a hand sanitizing station for visitors.
  • We will make sales advice on our products available to you in-store by making appointments via email or offer advice by phone at 705.646.0492.
  • We will maintain lower pricing on most imported items despite the recent changes in the exchange rate and introduce additional specials for pre-orders on the latest Boat and Bike models.
  • Spring 0% Interest /12 Month Financing is now available for many new purchases. Some conditions apply.
  • Delivery – While we have regularly offered a local home and cottage delivery of our larger items like Paddlesports we will now offer personal delivery service for Bikes and all Boats and Boards to a broader area of Ontario through a regular delivery schedule. This will also allow us to continue to offer the personal approach you would expect in store but to your door. Online shipping continues to be available across Canada on most items.
  • Private Adventures – We will continue to provide private bookings for our available adventures however limited at this time of year with the transition in seasons but if you’re looking for something to do with your group we can certainly discuss what we can make happen to keep you entertained outside!
  • Trails – Our Liv Bike Park trails will remain open and free of charge for hiking, snowshoeing and fat biking at your own risk. As the season changes and much of the trail has ice patches we recommend using footwear traction or snowshoes and studded tires on bikes. Should conditions become soft we ask that you minimize trail damage by leaving the trail. If you would like to assist in Spring maintenance please contact us to sign up with our trail crew.
  • Waterfront – Our waterfront has not yet opened for the season though we do expect to have our docks ready in the coming weeks. For those looking to make an appointment to test paddle a new boat we do have drysuits for your safety available.

Great Ways we can help each other!
