  1. hello, can you tell us if Glenora (Shawnigan) is closed for a long time or will it open again in the next week or so?

  2. We are hoping to have Shawnigan (Glenora) open by next weekend. We should have a better idea by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. We know that people are anxious to get in there and we appreciate everyone's patience.
