Media Statement: March 17, 2020
The health and safety of our team members and our customers remains our top priority. For peace of mind, we have increased security in our stores – this includes increasing the hours for existing contracted security, hiring off-duty police officers and asking local police departments to patrol our stores and parking lots as frequently as possible. We also want to remind everyone that the food system in the United States is the most sophisticated and robust in the world and can absolutely keep up with rationale demand. We encourage everyone to be smart, be kind and resist the unnecessary urge to stockpile goods at the expense of your neighbors.
