Coronavirus Update

The health and safety of our customers and team members is our number one priority during this time. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation by using the Pennsylvania Department of Health and CDC  as our primary information resources. This is an ever-changing situation that we will continue to monitor very closely on a daily basis.

Mask Policy:

All customers are required to wear a face covering that covers their mouth and nose at all times while on premises. Individuals who are unable to wear a face mask due to a medical condition must wear a face shield, or use our curbside pickup option (Click, here for details). Children under the age of 2 are exempt.

Our store mask policy is in accordance with orders from the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Updated Order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Requiring Universal Face Covering”, (section 4) and Governor Wolf’s “Order of the Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Mitigation, Enforcement, and Immunity Protections.” (view full order, here).

Adjusting our operations:
  • We have returned to normal store hours. Please review hours for your local store
  • The first hour of operation on Sundays will be a designated At-Risk and Senior Hour. We would like to thank our customers in advance for their understanding as we do our best to serve those most vulnerable. 
  • At any store where it applies, we will temporarily be suspending our Hot Bar, Salad Bar and Deli Counter services.
