Just saw a story that Schnucks and Dollar General are also participating in a "senior hour", where only senior citizens are allowed to be in the stores for shopping. What a great idea, what do others think?
I am a therapist I provide a service for the elderly THANK YOU!!
Benjamin Chansky. The only problem with senior hours is that, unfortunately, those hours have to be very early when the store is at its cleanest. That said, I would be glad to go. The benefits outweigh the draw back. Take care, Benjamin!
Senior hours really...do u want to go to the store at 6-7 a.m and those were your 65 and up options? Some seniors get up and have to eat before taking there medicine and the bones aren’t always working as a team. My mom is 76 and I told her to go whenever she wants. Telling her to take the proper precautionary measures like we all should. Of course that’s the choice senior hours YEAH!!
I think it's great it gives them time to get the things they need and not be exposed to the virus.
would be if it was respected by the younger generation, but the majority of citizens put themselves first.
thanks Chinese must have took you 1 hour to think this up
just think what if it was a money grab?
Benjamin Chansky: I think it's a great thing. Early in the morning, the stores will be at their cleanest, which is good especially for seniors. (Maybe immune challenged individuals s/b included in this 1st hr but not sure how they could prove it, if asked). Also, shelves s/b full at the early hour.
#Benjamin, The stores are doing this so the seniors can shop while there are still products on the shelves and before the stores become over come with crowds. Hopefully, the night stocking staff has taking care to wipe down all carts and touch points. It is primarily for them to have first access to getting much needed items that are now being limited to one per person such as toilet paper and paper towels.
I know for a fact our seniors here in Tennessee are suffering because we were hit with the tornadoes first and people were donating those products by the car load, then we got hit with the virus and people began to hoard. Our seniors need this first hour to shop and purchase these supplies without being pushed and shoved for essentials.
That's 👍 super great!! Hopefully the stores are keeping it in mind that the viruse stays alive for 9hrs with out a host . so unless the place is disinfected from top to bottom front to back there's still in danger of our seniors being overcome by this new strian of the flu.
