What We’re Doing
We’re committed to the well-being of our customers and employees. At a time when social distancing plays a critical role in slowing the spread of COVID-19, our digital and support services are ready to help when you need it most.
Because you’re at the heart of what we do, we’re working hard to understand how to best serve you during these unpredictable times. As long as COVID-19 continues to affect our communities, we’ll keep this page updated with our latest efforts to support our customers and our community.
We’re here for you when you need us most. For many, your phone is your lifeline, whether that’s to communicate with your family, contact emergency services, to book appointments and to stay connected. There are many customers that require specialty batteries whether it be for hearing aids, a thermometer, or a cordless phone. We are committed to be here for you.
So you can stay safe, we’ve made it easy to shop from home and get the services you need online. All orders on boltmobile.ca will get free shipping and waived activation fees when upgrading to a new phone.
We are also offering “Curbside Pickup” at all four locations in Saskatoon if that works best for you. Place your order online and we will arrange for you to pick it up at the store of your choice, without leaving your vehicle.
We're committed to ensuring our customers have access to the communication services they need.
All SaskTel internet plans are already unlimited with no overage charges so customers can access the internet as much as they need.

As we navigate through these unprecedented circumstances, we have implemented a number of safety measures to keep everyone safe. Enhanced sanitation practices are currently being exercised at Bolt-Mobile to ensure a clean environment during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Please be advised all customers will be asked to sanitize and disinfect their phone upon entry to a Bolt Mobile store. All staff will be maintaining a safe social distance of at least 2 metres for all interactions.
To ensure the cleanliness of our physical stores, we are:
- Disinfecting sales counters regularly
- Disinfecting display devices regularly
- Disinfecting high traffic and high contact areas such as door handles and work stations regularly
We are using disinfectant approved by Health Canada for use to prevent COVID-19.
