Updated Information re: COVID-19

Some updated information for you:
* We have decided to take time off and essentially close up starting this Saturday (March 28, 2020). The shop will not be completely closed as of yet as Bonnie will be there for shifts to answer phones, contact clients with existing appointments, etc.
* The answering machine will give you directions on how to get a hold of us for future bookings during this time as well as if/when the government decides to close non-essential businesses.
* During this week some of our staff will have their last day earlier than Saturday and some staff are already off due to shortage of work.
* If the government does shut down non-essential businesses you will NOT be contacted.
* We have minimal staff currently, so the very best way to reach us for both immediate information regarding appointments as well as future appointments will be through email at thegildedpear@shaw.ca. We will be compiling a list so that we can then get in touch with everyone by phone once we reopen.
We ask for your patience and understanding at this time as this is uncharted territory for all of us.

The Gilded Pear Announcements Regarding COVID-19

We wanted to let you all know that we are still open and excited to provide all your hair and aesthetic needs!! Our staff are very proud of the bubble of cleanliness we have created and are efficiently upkeeping all day, everyday. We are spraying, wiping and sanitizing all the time. We now have Lysol disinfecting spray for our furniture and all magazines have been removed. You can have confidence that we are doing everything possible to keep our environment safe for everyone in our Gilded Pear family, clients and staff alike.
In order for us to continue to do our part, we need you to do your part too. If you have a fever or cough, please reschedule your appointment when you are feeling well. The Government of Alberta is emphatically stressing that anyone returning to Canada MUST self-isolate for 14 days, even if you are feeling well, therefore we must ask you that if you have been away and have an appointment scheduled within 14 days of your return that you reschedule it. Our staff are also following this 14 day self-isolation expectation by the government and we do have staff who have cancelled their out-of-country travel plans.

Along with our top notch sanitizing of stations, tools, furniture, hands, high traffic areas we are now limiting salon to 50 people and under at one time. We have juggled around appointments so that that peek times we are not to high in numbers. Thanks to those who helped us do this by coming first thing in morning while it’s slower in salon.

With your cooperation and us all working together, we will get through this.

The Gilded Pear Annual Christmas Charity Drive

This year, for our Christmas donation drive, we are collecting yarn for the GEF Seniors Housing.  This yarn goes to our beloved seniors who knit hats, scarves, mitts, baby clothes, slippers, booties and much more, all year round! In October, they gather their creations and they go right back into the community. Local charities such as The Mustard Seed, Friendship Seniors, and Ronald McDonald House are some of the charities they, in turn, support with their knitting.

Doing this is a WIN for everyone!

We will take gently used and new balls of yarn as well as cash donations that will be used to purchase yarn!

Thanks for your support of this worthy cause,

The Pears

Announcement: Salon Phone Number Compromised

Please be advised: Our phone number has been compromised and we are getting a lot of extra calls on our phone line due to the phone scam going on with our business line. This has been going on for about 5 weeks and we have been told from our phone service provider that there is nothing that can be done about this and that it will eventually stop. This has been very frustrating for us and very sad to see that people can scam other people so easily.
If you cannot get a hold of us due to busy phone lines please do not hesitate to email us at thegildedpear@shaw.ca
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you so much for your understanding.
