Tire shop encourages social distancing

Local OK Tire calls for extra caution

Our province is in a state of emergency right now. What we do today will impact the health of fellow Canadians in the weeks and months to come. It is so important to follow the ever-changing instructions from Provincial and Federal authorities with regards to COVID-19 and “flattening the curve.”

We had a gentleman in the shop a while back and I told him that we have a high-risk person in our home. Our son has an autoimmune disorder and we do not know how this will affect him. His reply was “I am sorry, I didn’t know that”. That is part of a bigger issue. We do not know who will be affected by our actions right now. Please treat everyone as if they are high risk. Stop the spread! Social distance yourself and stay home when you can.

At OK Tire Invermere we have announced that we have locked our doors… But we are still OPEN. Several other businesses have done the same. We are grateful that we can conduct business in this way and hats off to all the businesses who can’t but are putting the safety of their customers and staff first. There are some things we have not figured out yet, as this is new so please be kind and be patient. We are minimizing face to face contact as much as we can for now. We are doing outside exchange of keys. We are asking that everyone phone, email or text. We are still your one stop shop for automotive repair, brakes, services, alignments, tire sales and changeovers we are just doing things differently, for now. We are disinfecting as we get into your vehicle and disinfecting as we leave it. We are protecting our other customers, our staff and their families. We are doing our part, please do yours.

We have built our business on customer service, quality work and honest advice but please let us do this from a distance… for now.
