Our website now gives online shoppers the ability to price, order products to be shipped to our location and book an appointment all without coming into the store.

At Kal Tire, the safety and well-being of our team members, our customers and the communities in which we operate continue to be our number one priority. As transportation and automotive vehicle repairs have been designated essential services, we remain committed to supporting our customers with vehicle services, whether personal use or commercial.

These are challenging times, and we have implemented many safety measures at our stores to protect both our team members and our customers.

To all our valued customers, in order to adhere to strict physical distancing:A small designated number of customers are allowed to wait in store. Please adhere to all mask-wearing bylaws where applicable

Team members and customers must maintain a safe two-metre distance from others at all times

Preferred payment for service is by debit or credit. Cash payments will only be accepted when payment by non-contact methods is prohibitive.

Our commitment to cleaning and responsible operating include:Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures, including all touchpoints on vehicles before and after being serviced

Team members adhering to physical distancing, proper hand washing and cough etiquette practices

Reinforcing socially responsible sick leave policies and requiring team members to stay home if sick
