Welcome to The Driftwood Centre
on Beautiful Pender Islands

We have many great shops and services for all of your needs – the grocery store offers fresh meats, fish, produce, deli foods and more. The bakery cafe offers fresh baked goods, and breads and is open for lunch and breakfast. There is a well-stocked government liquor store, realty office, pharmacy, service station, post office, bank and an array of specialty shops. If it is a good book, fresh flowers, games for the kids or a frisbee for the disc golf course, you will find it here.

Driftwood Centre is taking as many precautions as possible, as is each business, to combat Covid 19.
If you have been out of the country, or not feeling well please, for the sake of everyone, stay home.

Please maintain a distance of 3 meters or 6 feet from the next person.

Thank you for your safety concerns and actions.

Tru Value

Do not bring your own reusable bags, own containers or boxes, we will provide plastic or paper bags for your items.

We are continuing to get stock however we are still experiencing shortages on flour, yeast, pasta, can tomatoes, toilet paper and tomato paste.

Meat, Dairy, Bread, Produce and Deli are getting regular deliveries with very little out of stocks.

We will continue to limit the number of people in the store to protect your health and safety and that of the staff. Recently the people controlling the front door have experienced some very rude behaviour. We ask for your patience and to be considerate of those people who are trying to protect your health.

We will continue to monitor the situation and adjust accordingly. Thank you for your patience and continued support. We are all working very hard.
