COVID‑19: How You Can Help
As a grocery store, it’s our job to serve our community, especially during these uncertain times. We want Metropolitan Market to be a safe place for you to shop, and also a place where our team members can come to work and feel safe too. Many of you have reached out to us to ask how you can help – and that’s why we value each of you so much. We’ve put together some helpful tips for what you can do to help keep our team members safe, and protect yourself and fellow shoppers.
Face Coverings and Masks
In accordance with CDC recommendations, customers are strongly encouraged to wear masks or other face coverings while in our stores to help keep Metropolitan Market a safe place for shoppers and team members.
Create Safe Shopping Space
Please maintain a healthy six feet of distance from your fellow shoppers, and from our team members. Use the red circular markers placed throughout the store and at checkout as guides.
Have a Dedicated Shopper
While we know this isn’t always possible, please try to limit the number of people who do your household shopping. Shopping in groups, even if it’s just your family, makes it harder to create social distancing space within the store.
Customer Capacity Limits
Our store is actively monitoring the number of people in the building in order to give required space to customers and team members. If we are at capacity, we appreciate your patience and understanding as you wait to enter.
Limit Your Store Time
Less time in the store means less contact with other people.
Wash Your Hands
We’re all hand-washing pros by now – keep it up!
Play it Safe
If you aren’t feeling well or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 as defined by the CDC (fever, cough, shortness of breath) we ask that you stay home and take care of yourself. Please take advantage of delivery services or have a healthy household member tackle the shopping. We promise to still be here when you feel better.
