With the recent lockdown measures taking place in Ontario, we have chosen to take a well deserved rest and close our doors for a couple of weeks. We will re-open again on Monday January 11, 2021 at 10am. At that time we look forward to a healthier Ontario, where people can celebrate together again. In the meantime, please check out our site and plan for greater things to come. We will continue to provide excellence in service and quality for all your party and event needs!

Happy New Year! We wish you all hope and prosperity for 2021!

Just because we're in a pandemic, doesn't mean you have to do the dishes!

Just because we're in a pandemic, doesn't mean you have to do the dishes!

We understand that right now, things are a bit unpredictable and people can be feeling uneasy about gathering together over Christmas. That’s why we’ve changed the way we do things this holiday season. Through December, we are offering packaged place settings that rent per person – not by the dozen as usual. So if you have 9 guests, you only rent 9 place settings. If it’s 13, you get 13. The other unique thing about these settings, is that each one comes individually wrapped and ready to go on the table – sanitized and sealed for your protection and the protection of your guests!
We offer 2 packages – the RED package includes a dinner plate, dessert plate, dinner knife, dinner fork, dessert fork, 12oz wine glass and a napkin of your colour!
Our GREEN package includes all of the fore-mentioned, plus a soup plate, soup spoon and water goblet.
And, with each rental of more than $25.00 (pre-tax), you can receive the FREE RENTAL of a 16” oval turkey platter to match!
Large or small, we can help make your holiday gatherings special – and as always, leave the dishwashing to us!

Covid-19 Update November 2

Posted: Nov 2, 09:32 AM Permanent Link

Needless to say it’s been a unique summer in 2020! Congratulations to all the brides and grooms who went ahead with down scaled celebrations! We saw reductions from 120 people down 25 or even 12 in some cases. The advantage in all this is that it allowed many couples to reduce their budgets and still make it much fancier than originally planned!

Now that November has come, we are forced once again to reduce our operating hours. Unfortunately, our Orangeville office has been temporarily closed, however in Brampton we are still open Monday thru Friday from 10am until 2pm and closed Saturday and Sunday. In-store visits are through pre-arranged appointments but you can still speak with a consultant on the phone at 1-888-253-0811 or through email – info@mcleansherwood.com.

The holiday season may look very different this year, but we are always here to help with ideas and products to make your smaller gatherings extra special! we look forward to hearing from you!

Covid-19 Update May 25

Posted: May 25, 09:59 AM Permanent Link

We’re open again! The truth is, we were never really closed. We understand that many of the events that were planned in May and June have either been cancelled or postponed but we are hopeful that we can get this virus under control enough that we will be able to go ahead with many events beginning in July in some form or another. With this positive perspective, we have decided to open our showrooms for browsing and planning at selected times throughout the week. At both our Brampton and Orangeville locations, you may visit from 10am to 1pm Monday through Friday. Obviously, limitations on the number of people in the store will be in affect and we will be taking extra precautions to protect our clients and staff against Covid-19.

If you don’t feel the need (or want) to visit us in person, our staff is still available on the phone or via email to help plan your every event. Some things we’ve been helping out with during this pandemic include supplying extra cooking equipment and food warmers to long term care facilities, providing shelter for offsite kitchens and celebrating milestone birthdays with our flamingos on front lawns.
When you need us, we are here for you!
Stay Safe.

McLean Sherwood and Covid 19

Posted: Mar 16, 12:38 PM Permanent Link

There is a host of uncertainty around the world right now concerning Covid 19. The phrase “in an abundance of caution” has been heard over and over again. At McLean Sherwood we are taking a similar approach. Along with extra care measures being taken in the cleanliness and sanitation of our warehouse and equipment, we have also decided to close on Saturdays both our Brampton and Orangeville offices to allow our staff to be at home more during this outbreak. We don’t know how long this will last, but we hope to resume Saturday hours as soon as we can. We are still open Monday thru Friday from 9am until 5pm in Brampton and 10am until 5pm in Orangeville. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
We wish everyone good health and safety through these trying days.
