We have printed a lot of these postcard size invites with the front showing when, where, and for how long our market runs. We are mailing these to every residence in Whitehorse
December 8th - 21st
yes, 14 days as we added 2 more to our booking to spread out our customers.
9am - 9pm daily
we added 3hrs each day so to make their is ample choice for choosing a quite time to shop.
The back side will let you know our primary goal of spreading out our shoppers over the extended hours and shows the link to this page as conditions were changing prior to printing. See below for the full shopping guide "heat map"
Below is a handy link to use if you are unsure about your health status
the "shop smart" graphic on the back side of our postcard was generated from over 5 years of data. We simplified it down to a single day for the card but you should also know that Saturdays, Opening day and our final day are usually busy. It is during these days and times (12-3pm) that you might be asked to wait in the hallway if we are at capacity (26-30 customers) The above image is from 2020 and that data shows it quite busy the first few days. Our vendors work very hard to have stock for the full market - so visiting after the opening few days is still a great local shopping experience.
Controlled entrance (main doors) and exit (multi-purpose doors) are used to keep within capacity to ensure proper social distancing
One way traffic
Arrows are used to direct the flow of shoppers to avoid congestion in the aisles
Physically distanced line-ups
Markers on the ground will indicate the safe distance within the line-ups for the register
Sanitizing stations and mask wearing
Keeping your hands clean and wearing a mask helps deter the spread of the virus in our community
Shop during the slow times of the market and avoid the line-ups
If you are showing symptoms, please stay home.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY
We will have a preferred direction of travel while shopping at the market with arrows on the floor. You can always go straight to the cashiers by using the outside aisles.
All visitors will be entering through the main doors. KDCC staff will be welcoming the public to the building and will be checking for proof of vaccination. The doors in front of the market will be used as the exit only.
The doors in front of the multipurpose room will be used as the exit for the market. We are in the multipurpose room while Yuke Market is in the Artist Studio.
Our cashier area is adjusted a bit to separate our staff and customers arriving with their purchases. Two cashiers are on for most of our open hours and a roving 3rd cashier as required. One vendor staff will be on the door to monitor room capacity, welcome shoppers and answer any questions.
