Southeastern Grocers Inc. (SEG), parent company and home of Bi-Lo, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is extending shopping hours on Monday and Tuesday to add a special shopping hour from 8-9 p.m. dedicated to healthcare providers and first responders.
“At Southeastern Grocers, we are a people first company, and we are dedicated to being there for the community when they need us most. Our first responders and healthcare providers are working extra-long hours to take care of the community, and we want to do our part to take care of them,” said Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of SEG. “Beginning this Monday, all of our stores will remain open from 8-9 p.m. every Monday and Tuesday to allow these heroic individuals the opportunity to stock up on fresh food and essential items. We ask that our customers be respectful of this time we have dedicated to our frontline warriors.”
As a continued safety precaution, seniors and high-risk customers are invited to shop their local Bi-Lo, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket or Winn-Dixie grocery store from 8-9 a.m., Monday through Friday. Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana Winn-Dixie stores will be open weekdays from 7-8 a.m. for seniors.
SEG asks all customers to remain respectful of this time given to the elderly and other high-risk community members to allow them the comfort of purchasing necessary products in a safe environment.
SEG also has strengthened safety measures to protect communities from Covid-19 by installing protective Plexiglas partitions at all store registers, customer service desks, pharmacies and liquor store counters. Additionally, all stores will initiate a two-cart-length distance between customers at checkout by utilizing floor markers to encourage and maintain social distancing.
