Remember the times when you could head to the grocery whenever you want to or when you need to prepare for a special day? These days, the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything including the way we do grocery shopping. A trip to any store should be something you really have to carefully plan for a faster transaction.
Despite the orders to stay at home, we all need to go out sometime to get our essentials. And on Memorial Day, we usually plan to do something special like cooking a dessert for a local family or for the kids, DIY home projects, and a lot more. All these things mean we need to get everything we need from your favorite local store.
Prior to this pandemic, you certainly don’t need to ask the question above. But today, it is something you need to know first before heading out to the store. A lot of areas today are slowly getting back to business with the observance of the “new norm” like social distancing. Aside from knowing if a store is open or not, you also need to know how to safely do shopping at this time of the pandemic.
Safety Precautions on Store
It is important to note that a lot of stores now are taking precautions to deal with COVID-19. One of these is limiting the number of people allowed inside a store. With this, expect to see long lines in the store. You really need to bring your patience with you as you go shopping. You might also see markings on the floor to implement social distancing. Most stores might require shoppers to wear a mask and bring their own disinfectant as frequent hand disinfection is one of the new norms today.
Being a smart shopper would help a lot. Aside from the actions the store implements, you also need to practice your own safety protocols as well.
Some of the common actions healths experts suggest are the following:
- Sanitize your hands often.
- Touch only what you buy.
- Don’t touch any part of your face when you are outside.
Every Sam’s Club store is doing its best to implement safety precautions for all its shoppers. Adding these self precautionary measures would help a lot in improving the safety of everyone in the grocery store.
And before you plan your trip to Sam’s store, be sure that you have followed them on social media for any announcements regarding their store hours. These days, it is necessary to use the internet or social media to get all the information you need. Find their social media profile on Facebook and don’t forget to like their page to get regular updates. On their profile, you could also get contact details so if you have any clarifications you could always call them through the contact details they provided.
When is the best time to Go?
After knowing Sam’s store hours, you might also ask yourself when is the best time to go? There is no need to go too early if that is not your thing. The main thing is to try to avoid as much contact as possible and maintain a good distance from everyone. Be sure to check with your local store what the hours of operation are. Every area is different.
