A spokesperson said, “We are in unprecedented and uncertain times. What remains constant is our commitment to the health and safety of our associates, our customers and our community. It is the lens through which we make every decision.
“Given the rapidly changing environment due to the novel coronavirus [Covid-19], we have decided to temporarily adjust our store hours in all store locations.
“Starting on Friday, March 20, 2020, all MarketPlace stores will be opened at 8:00 am and closing at 8:00 pm Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. On Tuesdays and Fridays, we will open earlier at 7:00 am for our most vulnerable customers, our Seniors. On Sundays our hours remain from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
“This isn’t an easy decision but we are most concerned for our associates. With the increased numbers of customers shopping with us, we need more time to thoroughly sanitize, clean and re-stock our stores. Our associates are the heart of our business, and we also need to make sure they are taken care of and have time to catch their breath. We ask for your understanding during this time.
“As we continue to see heavy container volume coming onto our shores, we ask that you please shop sensibly and be mindful of others who are more vulnerable. Depending on the path COVID-19 takes will determine the next steps we will take to make sure we keep our customers and associates safe.
“Please continue to shop with us online at www.marketplace.bm and follow us on Instagram or Facebook for the latest information about our stores. Thank you for being a valued MarketPlace Customer and from our MarketPlace Family to yours, please stay safe and healthy.”
