Shoppers at Schnucks and Dierbergs have begun noticing a difference at checkout lanes as the companies begin to install plexiglass partitions at the registers. Schnucks expects to have its partitions installed at checkout, pharmacy and customer service counters in all stores by March 30. Dierbergs expects to complete its installation today.
At Dierbergs, the partitions will cover the front and backside of the checkout areas in an effort to create a safer environment for customers and associates during the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the partitions, Dierbergs is recommending to customers to keep a six-foot distance [roughly the distance of two cart lengths] between themselves and others as much as possible.
