Notice to all Safeway and Westfair Members

June 11, 2007
As most of you are aware, Canada Day usually falls on July 1. However, according to changes to the Federal Holidays Act when July 1 falls on a Sunday, Canada Day is on July 2. As a result, Westfair Foods and Canada Safeway stores will be open on Sunday, July 1, 2007 but will be closed on Monday, July 2, 2007. Due to the holiday falling on July 2 this year, Sunday July 1, 2007 is not a holiday; therefore, retail businesses can be open like other Sundays and employees who work that day are paid their regular hourly rate of pay.
