BYOB – Bring Your Own Bubble

Cornwall Ontario – Imagine shopping with your friends or family without worrying about who else is in the store, having to wait in line or if people are waiting to get in behind you. Now you can stop imagining it and make it happen with Bring Your Own Bubble!

BYOB Cornwall

Bring Your Own Bubble (BYOB) is an initiative created in partnership between the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce, Cornwall retailers and Cornwall Tourism in response to a need for making the upcoming shopping season more enjoyable, less restrictive and most of all, safe.

How it works

Participating retailers have agreed to open beyond their regular store hours for private bubble bookings.  You and your bubble can reserve a time that works for you to come and shop in a relaxed and safe environment! Your bubble will have the store to yourselves to browse at will – you will not have to wait in line and you can enjoy shopping for the retail therapy that it is.

Participating stores

Participating retailers have something for everyone on your list. From unique kitchen and cooking items to custom jewellery, home décor and fashion, you are sure to find what you are looking for!

The list of participating businesses is growing everyday, so come back and check the list often.  There is no limit on how many bookings you can make!
