Premier Sunshine Coast Resort Closes During COVID-19 Outbreak
For Immediate Release: Lund, British Columbia. March 19, 2020
During this unprecedented time, the practice of wellbeing is, as always, at the heart of the Lund Resort at Klah ah men, a place of rest and refuge on the northern end of the very special Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. We are all working in extremely difficult and rapidly changing circumstances. The impacts of COVID-19 to the tourism industry is significant.
The health and well-being of our team associates, our guests and most especially the Tla’amin Nation’s community is our top priority and remains at the forefront as we make decisions in this rapidly evolving situation. As such, The Nation’s leadership has made the difficult decision to close Lund Resort and all public outlets excluding the new Stock Pile Grocery store, effective March 25th, 2020 and we will remain closed until further notice.
Effective March 25th the Resort’s new grocery store, Stock Pile, will open 7 days a week from 7a to 7p to best serve the local community. Food vendor, Sobeys, will ensure that stock is well inventoried. Complementing groceries is the fresh, new deli offering a large selection of hot and cold Food-to-Go items. Customers can also order online as of March 25th with free delivery in and around Lund to Powell River. Visit www.lundresort.com for full details.
On behalf of The Tla’amin Nation, the Resort’s General Manager, Scott Wilshaw shares “The health and safety of colleagues and community remain our most important considerations. We will continue to evaluate and monitor the situation in partnership with health officials to assess when we will reopen our hotel operations and safely bring our team back to work.”
Further, on behalf of The Nation, Resort Management and the team, a warm thank you goes out to the communities of the Sunshine Coast for their loyalty and continued support during this period. Everyone is looking forward to welcoming the world back to The Lund Resort once travel bans have been lifted. In the meantime, Scott and his team emphasize their thoughts to all with “We cannot stress enough to please take good care, stay in touch with those who are in quarantine, and above all else, let us help one another to remain positive and kind, as together we will get through this.”
