Busy B operates out of two buildings, each staffed by a dedicated group of community volunteers. It is the goal of the members of the society to have the stores open according to the hours listed below, with the exception of civic holidays. However, due to the fact that volunteers may not always be available, there may be times when it is not possible to be open as planned. In this case, you may call the contacts listed below to arrange for shopping time. Also, if you are coming from out of town, you may call prior to travelling to be sure of access to the stores.
