Navigating COVID-19: Updating Our Service Options To Keep Our Customers and Associates Safe

Effective Wednesday, March 25 2020

Dear valued customer, 

These are unprecedented times and the situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, with new updates every day. We are closely monitoring the status in Alberta as well as the rest of Canada. The health and safety of our customers, associates and communities remains our top priority. We have implemented new protocols based on the latest information and guidance set by the Government of Canada and World Health Organization (WHO).

At this time, James Electric is open for business, however, we will serve our customers under new restrictions.  To ensure social distancing, only James Electric associates will have access to our branch facilities. While customers will be restricted from entering our building, all customers will still be able to use convenient alternatives to place orders, and options are available for pick up and delivery. Our sales and service personnel are available via phone, text or email. Our goal is to ensure the safety of our associates and customers, and we must all work together in these times. 


  • Deliveries will be processed as usual, but the door will be locked. Ring the bell beside the door and wait until a James Electric employee can assist you.


  • Call ahead (403-252-5477) or email your sales person. We are happy to process your order. 
  • If you are bringing items to find the same or similar product to purchase, please take a picture and send it to your sales person. You can also bring it up to the showroom door and a sales person will assist you while maintaining physical distancing.
