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.
We are asking that on Tuesdays & Thursdays, between 7am and 9am, you allow our senior shoppers to have priority shopping with fewer customers in the stores. We understand that this may not work for everyone but appreciate everyone’s consideration. pic.twitter.com/QuMKjul3Kd
