Local Grocery Chains Are Now Offering Senior-Only Shopping Times To Protect The Most Vulnerable from Coronavirus

Time of chaos often bring out the best in us, and large companies aren’t excluded.

At least four of our local grocery chains are opening up solely for people 60 and older, so the most vulnerable demographic can buy their essentials with at least a semblance of safety from COVID-19.

Starting today, Mariano‘s 44 area locations will open every day from 6a-8a every day to senior citizens 60+.

Jewel will open to seniors only from 7a-9a every Tuesday and Thursday.

Whole Foods will open one hour early just for seniors (store hours vary by location).

Target announced earlier in the week it would reserve the first hour of business every Wednesday for seniors and those with other heath conditions.
