The MarketPlace is advising customers to “shop sensibly” in the midst of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
A spokesperson said, “The MarketPlace is advising customers to shop sensibly and only shop for what the need in light of the novel coronavirus [Covid-19] pandemic.”
Seth Stutzman, President of The MarketPlace, said, “We strongly encourage customers to shop sensibly, shop for what you need and be mindful others, especially those most vulnerable in our society. We are experiencing high volume and our team is working hard to ensure we are stocked to meet growing demand.
“With no concerns from our suppliers, we have doubled and tripled orders on key items. We are working to keep our shelves stocked as quickly as possible.”
The spokesperson said, “Sanitation and safety have always been a top priority here at The MarketPlace group of stores. Along with putting a continued focus on our current high standards, we are taking additional precautionary steps. We have increased the frequency of sanitising high-traffic touchpoints [door handles, carts, surfaces, food service areas etc.].
“We are doing everything we can to provide a safe shopping experience for our valued customers and a healthy environment for associates and communities.
“In this fast-moving environment, we will provide updates when appropriate and in alignment with Government health guidelines as we remain committed to providing quality items to our hard-working customers.
“This is a time for all of us to embrace our communities and work together to help each other. We thank our customers for trusting us during this difficult time.
