Eliminating promotions so as not to drive traffic, controlling how many shoppers can enter a store at a given time, one-way signage down the aisle and temperature checks of associates before they start working are some advanced measures that retailers are taking to keep stores safe.
Meijer, Natural Grocers, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart, Target and more have been updating safety measures. Store Brands has updated its running retailer roundup.
Among the updated list, Home Depot has introduced some unique benefits such as extended paid time off for all employees that can be used by the end of the year. Full-time hourly employees get 80 additional hours; part-time get 40 hours extra. If an employee is 65 years of age or older, that employee earns an additional 80 or 40 hours on top of the other hours.
