FreshCo stores have adjusted to the changing needs and demands of COVID-19 outbreak by adjusting Freshco hours, allowing more time for staff to clean and stock the shelves, including a special hour of shopping for seniors and those who require more time or attention to complete their shop, one way aisles with arrows to mark, and social distancing especially in line ups, and shields in place at check outs to protect both the staff and the customers.
While Freshco hours may be varied during the COVID-10 outbreak, it is best to check your local store before planning your shopping trip. The website https://freshco.com/find-store/ will map and list out all the stores closest to your location. It will show you all the departments and services available at each store as well as Freshco hours. Due to the several different opening hours each store they can not all be listed here. Stores generally open between the hours of 7 am and 9 am, and most close at 8 pm, 9 pm, or 10 pm.
There have been changes made in the way FreshCo stores are operating, such as arrows directing which way to go in aaisles, and staff to sanitize carts and provide them to the customers while watching how many people are in the store at one time and that social distancing is maintained. Shelves and fixtures are being sanitized more often and extra time is being spent stocking shelve to maintain the supply for customers. Some Freshco stores have increased staffing levels to maintain proper stock at all times. It is recommended that hands be washed before beginning your shopping as well as after, and anyone using reusable shopping bags is asked to pack their own groceries.
Adjustments have been made to the suppliers as well, with faster pay schedules to suppliers and increased cleaning and sanitation from suppliers to delivery and warehouses. All Freshco staff is being asked to not go to work if they are sick with anything at all, and health and safety is the priority in all locations and all staff. Along with the shields that have been added at all checkouts to protect the cashiers as well as the customers, and debit or credit is preferred over cash when possible, and contactless or tap recommended whenever it can be used. It is requested that you pick up and touch only items that you are purchasing and maintain as little contact with fixtures and other items as possible.
