Stores offer hours, services for high-risk customers

Some grocery stores are offering certain hours and services for the elderly, pregnant women and those with health and immune issues in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus pandemic.

A growing number of Illinois grocery stores are setting aside hours for those at higher risk to shop, said Gov. J.B. Pritzker during a briefing last week.

All essential services will remain open, including but not limited to grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations during his stay-at-home order.

Local stores (in alphabetical order) with hours/services for those higher at-risk customers:

Dollar General (all locations) — The corporate office announced dedicating the first hour of each shopping day.

Handy Foods in Ottawa — Every day from 1 to 3 p.m., they encourage the community to allow older adults and “at risk” to shop. Crowds will be kept to a minimum and make them safe as possible.

Hy-Vee in Peru — 7 to 8 a.m. every day, seven days a week.

Illinois Valley Food & Deli in LaSalle — 7 to 9 a.m. Saturday-Sundays.
