Hannaford Dedicates Early Morning Shopping for Vulnerable Customers

SARATOGA COUNTY — Hannaford Supermarkets announced its stores will offer dedicated shopping hours for people age 60 and older, as well as those with compromised immune systems. 

Stores will open 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. on Tuesday through Thursday to service this vulnerable population and allow a less crowded shopping environment, which enables better social distancing.

In addition, Hannaford has shortened its general store-operating hours to provide for additional time to clean, stock shelves and give associates additional time to rest.  The new daily hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Providing a designated shopping period for seniors and at-risk individuals allows this population to shop prior to other customers being in the store. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), people who are 60 and over and those with compromised immune systems are most vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. Although associates will not be requesting ID for entry, Hannaford urges the community to respect the intention for the early opening.

Locally, stores are located on Weibel Avenue in Saratoga Springs, as well as Ballston Spa, Malta, Greenwich and South Glens Falls. 

Hannaford Supermarkets also announced it is donating $250,000 to support area food banks that are experiencing increasing and unprecedented demand during the widening of the COVID-19 global pandemic – including $50,000 to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, which services many food pantries across Saratoga County. 

A register and store kiosk donation program has been initiated at all Hannaford grocery stores where customers can donate to their community’s local food bank at the register with a $5 or $10 donation, or with a cash donation at a kiosk located at the front of the store.
