From 9:00 am to 8:00 pm the store will be open to all customers.

The supermarket chain is also practicing social distancing, limiting the number of customers in stores. Staff is now monitoring the front door, manually opening and closing doors for customers to enter and exit. If the supermarket reaches 50% capacity, it will close its doors waiting for the number of people inside to drop.
