What are the new timings for Lowes Food?

According to the announcement on the official Twitter account, the Lowes’ Food store will open at 7 AM in the morning. The stores will be closed by 10 PM in night. The change in the timings is due to the growing casualties of the coronavirus pandemic.

It has been observed that the panic buying at the grocery stores with people lined up to get hold of necessary products for self-isolation required drastic steps on behalf of the stores. To contain the situation, and to help out the people in a regularised manner, the changes have been implemented.

Before the advent of the global pandemic, Lowes’ hours were 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. which used to frequently extend till midnight. The reduction in the shopping hours is done to accommodate and handle additional cleaning and stocking of shelves.

Also, Lowes has assigned a special shopping hour for seniors and the customers who are quite vulnerable from 7-8 a.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

As per the reports, Lowes’ is also making it a point to hire extra staff in order to run the stores efficiently during the pandemic. This is also done to target the hospitality employees who have lost their jobs owing to the job cut during covid-19.

The CEO of the company Marvin R. Ellison remarks that he is grateful to the helping staff to keep things sorted during the pandemic. “Throughout the spring, summer and now into fall, our front-line associates have shown remarkable resilience and dedication to our communities in the most trying times we have faced together,” Marvin R. Ellison said.
