Sprouts Farmers Market hopes to provide customers with healthy food and essentials during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re eager to provide you and your families access to the healthy grocery essentials you need during these unprecedented times as quickly as we can,” said Sprouts Chief Operations Officer Dan Sanders in a video release to customers.
The organic grocery store at 19630 Hwy 99 in Lynnwood, will remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March 24, the store is operating on modified hours, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., instead the regular hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The adjusted hours will allow team members designated time to clean and sanitize the store.
In addition to their regular cleaning procedures, Sanders states that Sprouts employees are frequently cleaning high touch areas such as service counters, restrooms, carts, and checkout lanes.
To adhere to social distancing mandates, the store has placed standing markers six feet apart on the floors at checkout lanes. Sanders says they will be installing plexiglass register barriers to protect staff and customers.
Sprouts is also implementing purchase limits to quantities of two on eggs, gallons of milk and sanitation products to guarantee that customers have access to in-demand products. To continue to keep shelves stocked, the store is also receiving daily deliveries.
“We’re working closely with suppliers on the products you tell us are most important to you and your families,” said Sanders.
In addition to maintaining the health of customers instore, Sprouts is offering free grocery pickup or delivery through Instacart, as well as free online cooking tips and meal ideas.
“It’s an honor to serve you and be here for our communities when you need us most instore, online or with pickup, said Sanders. “We’re here for you. Thank you for your support.”
