Stores across Penticton are taking steps to ensure that all of their customers are able to shop comfortably.
The Penticton IGA and Superstore are instituting seniors only shopping hours.
Every Wednesday and Friday, IGA will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 for just seniors and the high-risk individuals in the community.
Superstore is reserving 6 a.m. until 7 for customers who need assistance including seniors and people living with disabilities.
Limits on how much of an item a single customer can buy are also rolling out.
“We are putting in limits as commodities decrease,” said Cindy Piotrofski, the manager of Penticton’s Safeway, Tuesday.
In a letter sent out to members of Superstore’s President’s Choice members, the chain also reassured their customers that they would keep their stores open and stocked through the ongoing situation.
Walmart and Save-On-Foods have not yet responded.
