Some Supermarkets to Limit Hours, Services

Several grocery stores are limiting their hours  and some services in the coming days so that they can expand cleaning and to restock from the hollowing out of products by hoarders and shoppers worried by the COVID-19 epidemic.

Note that local hours may differ. Check with your store.

Stop & Shop  

All Stop & Shop store locations remain open despite some shortages.

Updated Store Hours

Many stores will reduce hours to 7:30 a.m.-8 p.m. starting Monday, until further notice.

Pickup Services

Temporarily suspended until further notice. Store workers will focus on restocking shelves other  priorities.  The service will be restored  once product availability increases.

Delays with Home Delivery

Online shoppers may experience delays on the website as well as with delivery times. This is again due to extremely high demand.


Lidl didn’t address the possibility of changes in hours, but said, “Lidl US is working diligently to secure our supply chain and limit impacts on availability to the largest extent possible. We are also working actively with our home delivery partners to ensure that customers who wish to have Lidl products delivered are able to do so. If you’re interested in learning more about our home delivery options and whether this service is available in your area, you can find more details here.”


The chain is limiting the sale certain products, including disinfectant cleaners and wipes, bar and liquid soaps, water, cough/cold OTC medicines and other items.  Please click here for a list of items.

ShopRite from Home

The program continues but with some delays because of demand.

A driver will call or text an at-home customer when they are on their way to make a delivery, which will be left at the door.
