After Hours Pickup at Royal City Brewing

When the original COVID lockdown hit in March 2020, we, like a lot of other businesses drastically cut down our hours. We went from being open until 6pm, sometimes 7pm most nights down to 5pm. Because most of our clients were now stuck at home, the earlier closing time wasn't as limiting for our customers.

Fast forward now to September 2021, and things are starting to return to a semblance of normalcy. People are back at the office, after work events, and other things are coming back. Which means, it has been harder for our amazing customers to get to the store before we close. 

Why Not Be Open Later?

We are going to be a little bit. Starting this month we are now open until 6pm on Thursday and Fridays nights. Not a big difference, but it should help. 

But, the one thing we learned from being closed earlier is that it was really nice to get home a little earlier and spend more time with our families. More time for home cooked meals, or to get into hobbies like bread making or fitness, or let's be honest: Netflix. 

A work/life balance is something that is important to staff and ownership of KJ. That's partly why we're not open Sundays, and why our full time staff get guaranteed hours with two days off in a row every week.

But it also important for our customers to be able to get the products they are looking for within their busy schedule. 

Enter, our friends at Royal City Brewing. 

After Hours Pick Up at Royal City Brewing

Orders can now be picked up after we close at Royal City Brewing, who in case you don't know are our amazing neighbours who have an award winning brewery and beer garden. They are open later than us every day, and are open Sundays. They have graciously offered to become a pickup hub for after we close. 

There are some important caveats to this:

1) We have to be notified that you would like to pick it up at Royal City, and the day you will be picking it up. Leaving a note in your order would be ideal. 

We will only be bringing orders over to Royal City that are being picked up that day. 

2) Orders must be paid for in advance. If its an online order its already paid, if it is a phone order we will need to take payment over the phone (Mastercard, Visa, Amex, but no debit.)

3) Wait for a confirmation email from us before going to Royal City to pick up your order. 

4) Due to LCBO/ACGO rules, wine orders are not eligible to be picked up at Royal City.

How to Pick Up an Order from Royal City

At checkout, select Local Pickup, but leave us a note that you will be using the after hours pickup. Please add the date you would like to use this service. 

When the day you have selected comes, we'll prepare your order and bring it over to Royal City before close. Then we'll send you a notification that your order is ready to be picked up from Royal City.

Head over there on the agreed upon day within the available hours (listed below). Give them the order number and your name and they will bring your order out. All orders will have been double checked by the staff at KJ before being brought over to Royal City. They simply will grab your order and give it to you. 

While you're there, why not grab some beers!!!
