Sheetz designates shopping hour for at-risk customers
Sheetz is designating one shopping hour each Sunday for customers who are a high risk to contract COVID-19.
The special hour of operation will be held from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. starting Sunday at all 279 Sheetz stores in Pennsylvania.
The time also will be reserved for senior citizens.
“This policy is being implemented to provide at-risk customers with a comfortable in-store experience,” the Altoona-based convenience store chain said in a news release Saturday.
“Sheetz’s store employees will not be checking IDs of customers during this hour, but asks that community members respect this reserved hour.”
Also, starting at 8 p.m. Sunday, all customers will be required to have a face covering and employees will wear masks in all Sheetz stores, in accordance with Gov. Tom Wolf’s recent state health order.
