Save-On-Foods is limiting capacity at its B.C. stores to maximum 50 per cent occupancy until further notice.
Save-On-Foods has posted the occupancy count with signage at the front of each store and teams are working to increase signage in areas that typically see congestion such as at the front end or in-service departments such as deli or bakery.
“This is all part of our efforts to reinforce that physical distancing is required whenever possible for the safety of both team members and customers and as outlined in our COVID-19 safety plan, which has been re-instated as ordered by our Public Health Officer,” a spokesperson for Save-On-Foods tells Grocery Business.
Save-On-Foods says that in addition to promoting physical distancing, stores will continue with health and safety measures for employees and customers:
- Following all public health orders in every community.
- Increased frequency of disinfecting and sanitizing of all areas of its stores.
- Providing sanitization stations and hand sanitizer for customers and team members.
- Implemented a symptom checker for all team members, suppliers or business partners before entering the building.
- Added signage at the front of every store asking customers not to enter if they have any symptoms of COVID-19.
- Installed protective plexiglass barriers throughout the store.
“Our store clerks and leaders are doing an amazing job in what continues to be a very difficult time and we are so grateful to our valued customers for their patience and kindness with our teams when visiting our stores,” said the spokesperson for the company.
