8 Edmonton Shops Selling Treat Yo' Self Isolation Care Packages

Self-care never takes a break, not even during isolation.
Self-Isolation Care Packages In Edmonton For $100 Or Under

Even if you're someone who loves hanging at home and spending time alone, it's totally different when it's government-mandated. While we're cooped up at home, some of our favourite local businesses have been working hard to come up with some innovative offerings that are just so 2020. So to give you a little something to look forward to and a great way to support local, we've rounded up a list of stores selling self-isolation care packages in Edmonton

Edmonton has started to really look like a ghost town as some businesses temporarily close up shop and others swap to work from home procedures. Basically, none of us are going out all that much

Though we're all just out here (or in here) doing what we've got to do, we still miss driving to our favourite bakeries to get the most delicious cookies or going to a local tea bar and taking in all the aromatic scents and flavours. 

We don't know about you, but those specialty stores are essential services when it comes to our general happiness.  

From packages of delicious goodie to gift baskets packed with bottles of wine, these are the stores that are delivering special self-isolation packages just to keep you going through the long days. Netflix is great and all, but we need a little something extra. 

Note that stores are selling out fast and are also experiencing delivery delays, so you have to be patient to get your goodies.
