The company requests that customers limit the number of people shopping with them to one member per household to help support social distancing.

The release stated a Giant team member will be stationed at the front entrance tracking shopper flow and when the store has reached capacity, customers will be asked to form a line outside, while observing social distancing. As customers exit, customers in line will be allowed in the store.

“This pandemic has reaffirmed the critical role grocery plays in our local communities and we appreciate our customers’ cooperation as we implement additional measures to help keep both them and our team members safe,” said Nicholas Bertram, president, The Giant Company. 

The release also stated that the company is providing face shields and masks to all team members, who are required to wear them while in store.
