Walmart is once again adjusting store hours as the COVID-19 outbreak continues.
Walmart announced that starting Thursday, March 19, all Walmart stores in the U.S. will be open from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily.
“This will further help associates restock the shelves for customers while continuing to clean and sanitize the store. While the store hours change for customers, our associates will continue to have access to their regular scheduled shifts and full hours,”
Walmart stated late Wednesday night.
Walmart also announced that they will be hosting an hour-long shopping event every Tuesday for seniors aged 60 and over to allow seniors to shop. The event will take place one hour before the store opens. The pharmacy and vision centers will be open during the event.
Starting on Thursday, March 19, Walmart will be implanting limits on certain items at all its stores in the United States to help combat the recent surge of panic-buying.
“We know communities are counting on us more than ever and we are determined to serve the broadest number of customers and ensure they have access to the key items they are looking for. Our stores will have limits for customers in certain categories including paper products, milk, eggs, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, water, diapers, wipes, formula and baby food,” Walmart stated.
