MEDFORD, Ore. — Amid new "social distancing" rules and frequent shortages at grocery stores, Sherm's Markets says that it will hold a special hour every day for seniors and those with health concerns to shop.
The policy begins Friday and sets aside the hour of 6 and 7 a.m. every day at Food 4 Less and Sherm's Thunderbird Market.
"Sherm's wishes to allow our most vulnerable customers an hour to shop," general manager Bob Ames said. "For these customers, we are asking that all others try to voluntarily avoid shopping between the hours of 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. daily until further notice."
Safeway and Albertsons stores started a similar policy this week.
