As of today (March 16th, 2020) business is continuing as usual at First Filter Service. If the government mandates our closure, or any changes to our business model, we will comply. We are well aware that there are several time sensitive industries here in Saskatchewan that cannot withstand closure, in particular farming! To that end we have put together a plan to continue business even if there is a general shutdown.
We have made the decision to close on Saturday mornings for the foreseeable future. We apologize for any inconvenience!
In an effort to reduce physical contact we’re the following steps:
- Our front door is OPEN! We are limiting customers in store to 5. Please respect this limit. The line, if any, moves pretty quickly.
- Our staff is on site answering phones, emails, and texts (no pictures) if you are not comfortable coming into the store.
We will have phone, email and our website active in the event of any shutdown. We will answer phones and email at home. Our phone number for voice or text (no pictures) is 306 242 5321 and our email address for orders is [email protected].
We have the capability to generate a ‘pick slip’ remotely. We will have 1 employee at the store who will pick your order and box it up. Once picked, we will notify you that the order is ready to be paid for.
Once paid, you will have the choice of having it shipped or picking it up. For most ag customers shipping is not feasible, so a pickup will be arranged. When you arrive at the store, you can call or text us to announce your arrival and we will bring your order out to your vehicle.
While this will add several steps to our usual process, it will eliminate or drastically limit the total number of people that you need to interact with. If you have any questions, or need anything from us, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can call or text us at 306 242 5321, or email us at [email protected].
Our Spring Sale is planned to go ahead as usual. Our inventory is almost entirely in place. Spring 2020 will happen and crops will be seeded. First Filter’s priority is to support Saskatchewan’s farming community.
Thank you and stay safe!
