Area grocery stores to offer special hours for seniors, pregnant women and anyone with a compromised immune system

Posted March 23, 2020

The City of Fort Worth is working with area grocery stores to have early access for individuals who are at greater risk to COVID-19. Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, senior adults, pregnant women and anyone with a compromised immune system can visit Albertsons and Tom Thumb for groceries from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., Tuesday and Thursdays, to buy needed food items.

Whole Foods will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. daily for those same groups.

Stores report plenty of stock and ask that only one family member go to the store and shop for what is actually needed.

This is a recommendation and not a mandate.

The Fort Worth Fire Department will be at these locations to assist customers with carrying out groceries.

“This is just one of the ways that our businesses have been incredible community partners during this time,” said Mayor Betsy Price during her Facebook Live broadcast Monday.

The city continues to stress the importance of social distancing, particularly at places like grocery stores and pharmacies. This is critical for the health and well-being of all residents.
