Weis Markets Expands Operating Hours
SUNBURY, PA - Retailers are proceeding with caution as COVID-19 containment efforts continue. In its latest move, Weis Markets announced it is extending operational hours and availability of Weis 2 Go Online Pickup or Delivery, among several other implementations.
As for fresh offerings, the retailer noted that service delis are being reopened with social distancing markers and signage, indicating separate order and pick-up areas at the counter.
Weis Markets' store hours have been extended one hour in the evening, now 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Sunday hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Weis 2 Go Online Pickup or Delivery availability has also been extended from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. This move follows in the footsteps of H-E-B, Publix, and Meijer, all of which have expanded their hours of operations earlier this year.
In Pennsylvania, the designated shopping time for seniors and those with compromised immune systems remains on Tuesdays from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., the same day a 10 percent senior discount is offered on more than 6,000 Weis brand items.
Among the changes are the temporary closures of self-serve salad, olive, and soup bars, and in-store café seating areas, as well as temporarily banning the use of personal reusable bags and the return of used plastic bags.
“These changes are part of the company’s continuing efforts to upgrade and refine existing COVID-19 protection measures to ensure customer and associate safety, increase cleanliness, and minimize personal contact,” Weis said in a statement.
