Wednesday, March 18, 2020

As Covid-19 cases rise, stores are taking extra precautions to help keep the most vulnerable among us safe. Albertsons has announced that all of its stores nationwide will be open ONLY for those at risk every Tuesday and Thursday from 7a.m. until 9 a.m. including seniors, pregnant women and individuals with compromised immune systems.

The full statement is below:

The situation around Coronavirus continues to unfold across Albertsons Companies 2,200 plus stores nation-wide, we know that some of our most vulnerable neighbors are senior citizens and other at-risk populations, such as pregnant women or those with compromised immune systems, who have been advised to avoid leaving home as much as possible.

We are sensitive to they need, and we also know that everyone wants their neighbors to stay safe and healthy, too. We will reserve every Tuesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. until 9 a.m. for those vulnerable shoppers who must leave home to obtain their groceries, unless otherwise locally mandated. We are asking that our customers help us reserve this shopping time for those most at risk in our communities. We thank our customers in advance for their compassion and understanding toward their neighbors and friends, and in helping us maintain this temporary operations guideline.
