Stop & Shop, a supermarket chain with several locations throughout Queens and hundreds across the North East, announced today that it is adjusting its hours to accommodate senior citizens.

The grocery chain will provide senior citizens with a designated 1 ½ hour period each day– starting Thursday– exclusively for their shopping. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. the stores will only be open for customers over the age of 60.

Stop & Shop said that seniors are the most vulnerable population amid the coronavirus and it is important that they can get access to food and other needed supplies at this time. Furthermore, the stores will be less crowed which will enable social distancing.

The stores for the general public are now open from 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. effective immediately.

The stores were previously open from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day.

Stop & Shop has stores in Long Island City, Arverne, Rockaway, Maspeth, Glendale, Ridgewood, Flushing, Howard Beach and Ozone Park.

The company operates over 400 stores throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey.
