Walmart, grocery stores across country shorten hours
Turn Off Light
If you shop or work at Walmart, listen up.
Walmart is shortening hours at all of its stores in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The chain says the new hours will be 6 AM to 11 PM.
Employees will work the same schedules.
But the new hours will give them time to restock the shelves.
That’s because worried consumers have been rushing into stockpile food, medicine and other supplies.
Grocery stores are also operating on modified schedules.
As of Saturday Publix stores will close two hours early at 8 PM Eastern.
Shoppers at 1,200 Publix stores across many southern states will have purchase limits on some key items.
And the store is suspending in-store food demonstrations until further notice.
The Giant Company which has nearly 200 stores across the mid-Atlantic will also alter operations for similar reasons with 24-hour locations closing at midnight for six hours.
And the southeast chain Harris Teeter will close stores earlier beginning Sunday night.
