Just six days after its first Christmas market event, St. Andrews on the Square has cancelled its upcoming shows.

The decision comes after an announcement made by Dr. Bonnie Henry at yesterday’s B.C. COVID-19 press conference that banned indoor social gatherings until further notice.

Despite the closure, St. Andrews on the Square executive director Melanie Formansky is staying optimistic about potentially having some mid-December shows.

However, Formansky says it’s the local businesses who will suffer most.

“I feel so sorry for our vendors,” she said. “A lot of them rely on their sales to make ends meet. We also rely on rentals to make ends meet but we have been thrifty and can survive a bit longer.”

St. Andrews on the Square will update the public if it is able to have any future events.
