What's Open in Downtown Halifax - Retail & More


The COVID-19 situation in Nova Scotia is once again changing rapidly. Some businesses and organizations have made the difficult decision to either close or revert back to online ordering, take-out, and/or curbside pick-up options, while others have remained open for in-person service. As things are changing so quickly, we recommend checking the website or the social media sites of the business(es) you are interested in for the most current information on their hours and how they are operating.
