Stop & Shop announced today that starting Thursday, only people 60 or over will be allowed to shop at its stores between 6 and 7:30 a.m.
We’re making the decision to offer this every day of the week to allow for community members in this age category to shop in a less crowded environment, which better enables social distancing. They’ll also be shopping prior to any other customers entering.
Stores will have one designated entrance for shoppers during that period. The chain says it won't be checking ID but asks people under 60 to "please respect the purpose of the early opening - and do the right thing for your neighbors
