Things Are Open!

  • by

Things That Are Open is an online resource that collects submissions from businesses to tell their local customers that they are open for business during COVID-19. This service includes the Comox Valley. The website was created to aid small businesses during the pandemic.

Viewing Businesses

In the website’s business directory several small businesses are listed with information on if they provide pickup, delivery, or online services. Businesses stretch between sports and fitness, retail, real estate, health and wellness, and more. (I think I saw some donuts while looking, but you’ll have to see for yourself.)

Clicking into the listed businesses also provides additional information on their website, location, hours, and COVID-19 policies. These businesses are also making sure they’re clean and making your experience safe. How great!


Who doesn’t like discounts and deals? In the local offers page of the website, you’ll find deals you can apply to businesses on the site. These deals include categories such as:

  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Health & Wellness
  • Home Repair & Maintenance
  • Technology
  • Treats & Goodies

Maybe you’re looking to exercise more often, or want to complete a renovation in your house, or maybe you just want… donuts? Discounted donuts? Just take a look and I’m sure you’ll find something for you.

Adding Your Business

If you are an owner or work at a small business, or know somebody who does and is open for business, this is also a great resource to let people know that you’re welcoming customers back.
