In an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, several stores have altered their hours, announced temperature checks for employees and reduced certain services.
Now, two large retailers have announced more new changes that limit the number of customers in their stores at one time.
Effective Friday, April 3, Costco Will Allow No More Than Two People to Enter the Warehouse With Each Membership Card
“This temporary change is for your safety and the safety of our employees and other members, and to further assist with our social distancing efforts. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding,” Costco said on their website.
“As many of you have noticed, we’ve experienced a surge of business during this time. As a result, we’ve taken steps to control the number of members in our warehouses and asked that members and employees practice social distancing. We’ve also reduced some services,” Costco President and CEO Craig Jelinek said in a statement.
Home Depot Has Also Announced a New Policy That Will Limit the Number of Customers Inside
“We’re promoting the practice of social and physical distancing in our stores and distribution centers. As a result, your store may limit the number of customers allowed inside at any given time,” Home Depot said on their website.
