Whole Foods announced new hours to promote safety in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Whole Foods Market recognizes the important role the store plays in communities, especially during this challenging time. As Whole Foods prioritizes the health and safety of customers, Team Members and partners, the store remains committed to ensuring that all customers have access to the items they need, taking action to support Team Members and doing our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
In order to better serve communities, Whole Foods will be adjusting store hours, and recommends customers check the website for more information on each local store’s updated hours.
Starting on Wednesday, March 18, all Whole Foods Market stores in the U.S. and Canada will service customers who are 60 and older one hour before opening to the public.
Starting on Thursday, March 19, all Whole Foods Market stores in the U.K. will service customers who are 70 and older one hour before opening to the public.
Whole Foods stated the company is setting aside this time to help these customers — who national health authorities have identified as among the most vulnerable to COVID-19 — feel more comfortable shopping in stores. The special hours also help to ensure they are able to get the items they need in a less crowded environment.
In addition, Whole Foods Market stores will close up to two hours early to give Team Members more time to restock shelves, sanitize stores and rest in preparation for the next day. During this time, stores will remain open for pickup (in stores that offer it), and stores will continue to fulfill Prime delivery orders in an effort to meet unprecedented demand, and ensure that people who need to remain at home can still get their groceries in a timely manner.
