Grocery Shopping-Senior Citizens

A note from Roger Allen –
I spoke with a Customer Services person at Market Basket in Rindge a short while ago. I know many of us shop there.

They are continuing to open for their normal hours (7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.), but they have added Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings, 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. for Seniors only. A bit early, I know, but an opportunity to shop while the store is less hectic and easier to keep a distance from others.

She told me that most shelves are stocked at 75% of normal or better, the main exception being paper goods, specifically toilet tissue. Delivery trucks are arriving daily and overnight, as they usually do.

I also called Hannaford in Rindge. They are also maintaining normal hours, but no “Seniors only” periods at this time.

Stay safe, keep in touch with friends and neighbors, ask for help if you need it.
