The 50 states of the American Union have gradually started with the reopening, so many question whether the supermarkets will return to their ‘normal’ hours, and although there are some that have lifted certain restrictions, the truth is that there are also some others that continue with precautionary measures to counteract the number of infections by coronavirus. Cost is one of the first supermarkets to lift the hours reduction, since for the week of May 26 to 31, the stores will be operating from Tuesday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Although of course, the special schedule will continue so that adults over 60 years of age, as well as the most vulnerable sector of the population, can attend to do their shopping on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 08:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
For Saturday the hours will be from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It is worth mentioning that both staff and customers must follow precautionary measures, such as the use of face masks and physical distance.
