In light of rising COVID-19 cases and in the interest of associate and cIn light of rising COVID-19 cases and in the interest of associate and customer safety and health, beginning Monday, July 20, all 25 Dierbergs locations and all 113 Schnucks locations in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa, will require customers to wear masks. Exceptions include young children and those with medical conditions who are unable to wear a face covering. For those with a medical condition prohibiting the use of face coverings, Dierbergs is asking them to consider alternatives such as a face shield.
“As a business serving thousands of customers each week, it is important that we take every precaution possible to protect the safety of customers and associates while inside our stores,” said Greg Dierberg, CEO of Dierbergs Markets. “As the medical community has shared more insights about COVID-19, we have operated out of an abundance of caution with establishing enhanced cleaning protocols, requiring our associates and vendors to wear masks and installing plexiglass partitions for added safety. With this new requirement in place, for customers who have a personal preference to not wear a face covering, we partner with Shipt for grocery delivery or curbside pickup.”
Schnucks customers can opt to utilize Schnucks Delivers for curbside pickup at available locations or choose to have orders delivered to their homes by visiting SchnucksDelivers.com.
Signage will be posted over the weekend at the entrance of stores in both grocery chains stating this requirement. For individuals who do not have a mask, both Dierbergs and Schnucks will provide them, while supplies last.
