Beginning last week on March 19, Market Basket initiated senior shopping hours specifically geared to accommodate the needs of customers 60 and older.
Similar measures have also been implemented at the Stop & Shop on the Parkway.
Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30 to 7 a.m. Market Basket stores will be open only to serve customers 60 and older.
This is designed to enable these members of the community who are at greater risk with the coronavirus to shop in a less crowded environment, which enables social distancing.
“Our Associates really wanted to do this to serve many of our customers who are worried about their health,” said Joe Schmidt, Supervisor of Operations. “We are proud of how hard the team is working to serve all of our customers and address their needs. This will mean longer hours for them but everyone is willing.”
Market Basket stores are known for their cleanliness and high standard of hygiene. The team has increased this standard – with additional measures for the stores and for all Associates.
