El Paso’s Vista Supermarkets To Accomodate Senior Shoppers With Special Hours
For many of us, going to the grocery store is no big deal. We jump in our cars, maneuver around everyone with our shopping cart, and go all Mad Max on someone if they try to rip a package of toilet paper out of our hands. But what happens when you're an elderly person? Going grocery shopping in the age of coronavirus could be a scary, and potentially dangerous thing to do. But one local grocery store has elderly El Pasoan's backs.
Vista Supermarket announced it will be opening their store for special grocery shopping hours for customers 65 years old and older. The store will open from 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. to allow those customers time to shop without all the hullaballoo of regular shopping hours.
Vista Supermarket will be open during their regular business hours of 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Officials with Vista Supermarket said they will also help keep their customers safe by ramping up their cleaning of counters in the cashier and various store department areas, as well as step up cleaning in their bathrooms, on door handles and other high-traffic and high-touch areas of the store.
The local grocery store chain was founded in the 1980s, and they have locations from Horizon to Sunland Park. It is really nice to see a local business stepping up like this to help out a community that might otherwise get overlooked.
