Publix Expands Store Hours

Press release from Publix

Starting Saturday, May 16, Publix stores will be open daily from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m., and pharmacy will return to normal operating hours. Designated shopping hours for customers over the age of 65, first responders, and health care workers are being discontinued; however, Publix encourages customers who prefer to shop when the store is less crowded to come in during the 7 a.m. hour.

Each store will continue to support social distancing and the well-being of our associates and customers by

  • conducting additional cleaning and preventive sanitation before and after store hours, including sanitizing high-touch surfaces frequently throughout the day
  • requiring associates to wear face coverings and allowing associates to wear disposable, non-latex gloves where not prohibited by OSHA regulations
  • encouraging 6-foot separation through
    • regular intercom announcements
    • signage and floor decals and
    • one-way shopping aisles
  • having plexiglass shields at all registers, pharmacies, and customer service counters
  • promoting contactless pay and
  • allowing store managers to limit the number of customers inside stores.
  • Promoting contactless pay?… Does this mean they want
    To head towards cashless payment? Also, do customers
    In Alachua County need to wear face masks to enter?

    • I think it just makes they’ve finally caught up with the rest of the world and installed contactless terminals. I don’t think they’re requiring masks, but I’m not sure.
