March 15, 2020: Attention Beyond the Blue Box customers

The health and safety of our customers, staff and volunteers is of utmost importance during this challenging time. As COVID-19 spreads-and is now officially a pandemic-we are taking additional safety measures to do our best to protect everyone. As an additional safety precaution Beyond the Blue Box will be closed until further notice as of days end on March 15th (This includes both the driveway for donations as well as the store for shopping). We will continue to monitor the situation closely, follow the information and advice provided by public health authorities and provide updates as the situation changes. We encourage you to stay up-to-date on the most recent information.

Health authorities continue to stress taking the same precautions which are recommended every year for cold and influenza season. These include:

Regular hand washing
Coughing into your sleeve or arm
Not touching your face
Staying home if you are ill

For your reference here are hot lines that have been set up to help you access up-to-date information, get answers to your questions about COVID-19, and connect with health professionals if needed:

Ontario Ministry of Health (416) 235-6556/ 1 (877) 601-4567
HealthCanada 1 (833) 784-7397
Telehealth Ontario 1 (866) 797-0000

As of this time we have no date for when we will resume regular business, but we will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure. For updates on when we will resume regular business please visit our Facebook page.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but we assure you we have everyone’s safety and best interest in mind. Please be safe during this difficult time.

I stopped by to Beyond the Blue box last night as I was passing through town for the first time. Everyone was extremely welcoming, lovely and helpful! I found some amazing treasures that were for a great price. Thank you so much and I can't wait to come back.

Thank you for being there for us Blue Box. I love wandering round your store always something interesting to find. I have friends who come from out of the area and they are thrilled with a trip to the Blue Box. Keep up the good work.

Thank you, to all the wonderful people who volunteer your time to our organization !! We could not do it without you! You make Beyond the Blue Box an amazing place and we are so fortunate to have you! 

-Beyond the Blue Box

When I lived in Cobourg I used to go at least once a week. There were always a wide variety of treasures and practical items to find. I loved that the businees provided work for developmentally challenged workers (who were fantastic to chat with and help you find what you need) AND re-using items, AND diverting from the landfill. I wish they had a Beyond The Blue Box here. Love it!

-Barb Bisson

Love, love, love this place❣️
As we down-size our home, I’m thrilled to donate my previously treasured items to such a good cause at BEYOND THE BLUE BOX❣️Furthermore, I love to walk through the building(s) and perhaps find a wee “new-to-me” treasure❣️This is recycling/reusing at its best❣️ I also look forward to my chats with Victor and Gail
