Grocery Stores Have Implemented Special Shopping Hours For The Elderly

We’ve all seen the news reports that grocery stores are being bombarded by folks stocking up on items like canned goods, produce, and especially toilet paper. And while we are all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 crisis, those most vulnerable are definitely feeling it even more. That’s why certain grocery stores have decided to open their doors early to accommodate them.

Grocery stores like Pusateri’s, Sobey’s, Loblaws, and Shoppers Drug Mart have all committed to opening doors an hour early so that those most at risk like seniors, can shop.

“To support those most in need, some of our stores will offer dedicated hours for seniors and people living with disabilities to come in before the crowds,” said Loblaws.

According to Daily Hive, Shoppers Drug Mart also announced that its 20% Seniors Day discount will be offered on regular priced items as well during this first hour of shopping.

Upscale grocery store Pusateri’s is also following suit and will open at 7 a.m. for those most at risk. The retailer is asking those who aren’t vulnerable or at risk to start their shopping at 8 a.m.
