Below is a list of grocery stores offering modified hours for elderly, pregnant, disabilities, and other vulnerable people:
Albertsons announced it will set aside store hours twice a week for seniors, people with compromised immune systems, and pregnant women as people head to stores to stock up on items amid the coronavirus. Company officials said at a minimum, stores are reserving Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. for people most vulnerable in contracting the new coronavirus.
Costco has posted a note stating that they now have special operating hours for members who are over 60 years old or have physical disabilities. They will occur every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 to 9 a.m. According to their post, “only members who meet this criteria will be invited to shop during these hours. No guests will be admitted.”
Three local Denny’s locations have established drive-thru grocery service in their parking lots attended by their staff at an pop-up tent right outside the front doors. Guests simply drive up and place an order for groceries and their server brings it out fully packaged and ready to go. Grocery orders can be taken via phone or in the drive thru.
