CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Giant and Karns are adjusting their hours to give a one-hour period for customers 60 years or older to shop without worrying. The companies hope by doing so, it will protect those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19.
Starting Thursday, the Giant will be open from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. and reserve 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. for seniors. While Giant employees will not be checking IDs at the door, the company requests other customers respect the one-hour timeframe.
That time adjustment also allows staff more time to restock the shelves and sanitize the area.
“We are grateful for our team members who are working tirelessly around the clock to restock our store shelves and online fulfillment centers and continuing to serve our customers and communities during this unprecedented time,” Giant Company president Nicholas Bertram said in a release.
Karns will have a senior hour starting at 7 a.m. and will open to all customers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
