We’ve been paying close attention as news related to COVID-19 in Vermont continues to develop. And we remain committed to staying nimble and responsive in our decision-making around this public health crisis. Our goal is to do whatever we can to protect the health of our employees, customers, and greater community, while continuing to provide groceries in a safe way.
It has become increasingly clear that reducing human contact and limiting opportunities for the virus to spread is the most important step any of us can do to slow the outbreak.
In our Woodstock store, we’re currently formulating a plan to provide curbside pickup in lieu of regular shopping hours. On Tuesday, March 17, we will begin taking orders for curbside pickup only. Effective immediately, our Woodstock store will be closed for regular shopping as we determine the best course of action moving forward. At this point our prepared foods options will be limited, if available at all.
We’re in the process of assessing the needs of our Waterbury location and will be closed for the next two days while we determine next steps.
Please bear with us tomorrow while we get together a few rules and procedures around the pickup program. We will announce all details on our website by Tuesday afternoon and expect to have curbside pickup available beginning Wednesday, mid-morning through mid-afternoon.
Our community has a history of rallying together in support and friendship during tough times. And we expect no less in the days and weeks ahead. We’ll get through this together.
We will have more information on Facebook and on our website shortly.
