If you've stepped into a Dollarama in Ontario recently, you would have noticed many of the aisles are blocked off.

However, you can still shop for essential goods like groceries.

Some organizations have spoken out against this move, like the volunteer-run shelter support organization #one2give,; vulnerable populations need access to non-essential goods from dollar stores for "day-to-day survival," its co-founder said to Toronto.com.
