SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Many Wegmans, Tops, Price Chopper and Walmart grocery stores are popular for being open at almost any time, day or night, but the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused the supermarkets to temporarily change their hours.
According to a news release, Wegmans announced that they are temporarily changing their hours in stores across the country to better serve their customers.
All Wegmans locations in New York State, excluding the Brooklyn location, will be open from 6 a.m. until 12 a.m.
Tops Friendly Markets also announced they are limiting their hours of operation.
As of Sunday, Tops adjusted their hours and they will only be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. If a specific Tops location normally operates within these hours they will retain their normal hours.
On Saturday, Price Chopper announced their 24-hour locations will be closing at 1:00 a.m. and will reopen at 6:00 a.m.
Walmart also announced on Saturday they will be adjusting their store hours. Beginning Sunday, March 15, all Walmart locations will be closing at 11 p.m. and will reopen at 6 a.m. If a store already operates within these hours, that store’s hours will remain the same.
The time when these stores are closed will be used to clean and restock products.
All of the changes are temporary due to the coronavirus, but none of the stores have listed when they would revert back to their normal hours.
