Happy Easter !!
Rather than be frustrated at the isolation, I decided to take a look outside - from our balcony and took in the marvel of our city. What a place to live, work and play - when we can go outside - which we are lucky we can still do, even if we have to keep 2 metres apart.
There are also our friends and family that I know are safe. Part of the family is still in Peru and that will probably continue until mid-June.
What do they face? An absolute lockdown of the country. For the next four days, nothing will be open and no one is permitted on the streets. We had planned on a food delivery to them for today, but that is now rescheduled to next week. I think they will have to make rice, beans and a few cans of tuna last for the next 4 days. At this end, I feel pretty lucky with a semi-stocked fridge and a grocery store open 7 days per week, just across the road.
And, at Discount Motor City, used cars for sale in Surrey, we remain open along with the other used car dealerships along King George Blvd. We take strict measures to disinfect our used cars, the keys and everything else that someone may touch. Also, we only permit one person in the office at a time to maintain our physical distance - and sorry, we cannot greet you with a shake of the hand.
A liberal dose of hand disinfectant is available to anyone that asks and we do everything we can to protect our staff and our customers. And through all of this, we remain positive and energetic about life and happiness.
And on that, it never ceases to amaze me the smiles and energy that workers greet me with when I go into their establishments. Happy to be working, yes, but it goes well beyond that. They are all doing their part to help keep our collective systems working and our lives lifted up. You are a great part of the fabric of our society and thank you for all that you do each and every day.
From all of us at Discount Motor City, the premier of used car dealerships, Surrey, enjoy your weekend and Happy Easter!
