Meijer announced on Saturday it’s joining Wal-Mart, Target and other retailers across the country taking steps to make its stores safer for shoppers and staff. The retailer is asking customers to limit the number of shoppers who come to the store on each trip.

“We continue to look for additional ways to ensure the safety of our customers and team members in the face of this difficult challenge,” Meijer President & Chief Executive Officer Rick Keyes said. “By working together, we can reduce the spread of this virus and help keep our communities safe.”

Among other things, the store is:

  • Asking customers to limit the number of shoppers per trip, while understanding that some customers may need additional assistance.
  • Implementing processes to monitor the number of customers in our stores. This includes managing the number of customers shopping to support proper social distancing practices.
  • Conducting daily health screenings and temperature checks of team members as they arrive at the store.
  • Completing installation of protective plexiglass shields at all check lanes and pharmacies in its 248 supercenters and stores.
  • Adding signage and broadcast announcements inside the store educating customers about proper social distancing.
  • Temporarily suspending the weekly sales ad beginning April 12 to decrease customer count inside the store.

The store had already implemented a number of policies, including suspending removable bags, placing decals on floors and suggesting 6 feet apart standards for social distancing across the store.
