    Effective Friday, March 20, City Market will dedicate the first shopping hour on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., exclusively to the shopping needs of senior citizens.

    For all other customers, store hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on all other days. These hours are temporary as the grocer seeks to provide the best service possible during these times of uncertainty.

    “City Market wants to provide our at-risk customers with the ability to purchase the items they need while avoiding busier and more crowded shopping times. We request that customers respect these hours for the health of our community,” said the company in an email.

    “We have also been inspired to see local communities working together to shop on behalf of seniors and other at-risk customers. We are asking our customers to be patient, to be kind to one another and our associates, and to shop responsibly and purchase what you need, knowing that we will continue to replenish stores daily with the supplies and products our customers need most.

    “In every decision we make we are striving to balance the safety of our associates with our commitments to our customers and communities.”
