Many grocery stores, and other retailers like Target, are offering special shopping hours intended exclusively for people in the population who are at high-risk for illness, especially seniors and anyone with a compromised immune system.
This new and helpful tactic will minimize the chances of them getting sick — and decrease unnecessary stress. Early hours are the safest, cleanest and easiest times possible for them to shop. That is why stores have created early shopping hours for seniors in Orlando and Central Florida.
The list is intended to serve as a community resource. However, information may change, especially as safety protocols and procedures evolve by state, region or city. As always, double-check first. Friendly PSA: If you’re healthy, please ask your older relatives, neighbors and friends, if they need assistance with picking up groceries or other necessities.
