Local Grocery Stores and National Store Chains in Montgomery County To Offer Special “Seniors-Only” Shopping Hours

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich is recognizing local stores that have set aside special times for seniors as they shop for groceries during the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting Thursday, March 19, four local grocery stores and two national chains will open their doors to seniors (60 and over) only, allowing them to shop among a smaller group of people and without the increased possibility of COVID-19 infection.

“We understand the unique concerns of our senior citizens and the need to protect them while also giving them the opportunity to do their shopping safely,” said County Executive Elrich. “We appreciate the leadership of these stores and look forward to adding more stores throughout the County.”

Target and Whole Foods are each offering “seniors-only” shopping hours in all of their Montgomery County stores and four local stores are also participating in this special program. The hours vary from store to store. Check this list for stores and hours:

The county executiveʼs team is working with other local stores and national chains to expand the list in the coming days.
