Smith’s has set times for senior citizens to shop to help during this pandemic.
Smith’s Food & Drug announced today (Tuesday, March 17th) that it will allow senior citizens exclusive shopping access to its stores between 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This will all begin this Wednesday, March 18th. They’ve also stated that their staff will be available at each store to help those shoppers who acquire special accommodations. They are still looking to see if this can be applied to their pharmacy hours for seniors, hopefully, we’ll have an update soon.
“Smith’s wants to provide these at-risk customers with the ability to purchase the items they need to avoid busier and more crowded shopping times,” said Aubriana Martindale, Smith’s corporate affairs manager. “We request that customers respect these hours for the health of our community during this time of uncertainty. We appreciate all of our customers for their kind consideration, whose concern contributed to our decision to provide allocated hours for seniors.”
All other customers will be able to shop at Smith’s during the hours of 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM. In addition to opening hours for seniors only, Smith’s is also waiving the pickup fee for online orders received curbside for senior citizen customers who have verified they are 60 years of age or older. This will start now until April 18th.
