The Covid-19 pandemic has all sorts of restrictions going on among retailers. Now at BJ’s fresh meat purchases are being limited.
Members in our Facebook group have shared their restrictions at BJs. Here in New York state our local BJ’s and other grocery stores like Tops, have put a limit of one fresh meat package per member.
In New York state we are required to wear masks in public, but BJ’s along with Costco has now implemented a face mask covering policy in their stores.
BJ’s Wholesale club does offer a senior shopping time. Many have emailed me about the long lines for the senior hour, and others have said it was better to go around the 10 am time.
You will notice arrows in the clubs to encourage members to shop in one direction and have less people crowding the lanes.
Six feet social distancing is expected. Each club has capacity limits.
” Starting Saturday, April 4, 2020, BJ’s will limit the number of members allowed inside clubs at one time. The number of members allowed in clubs will vary by location based on the square footage of each club.
No more than 20% of a club’s total capacity will be allowed in the building at any given time. When possible, all members are encouraged to send only one person per household to shop in-club. This policy will help promote social distancing efforts and ensure a safer environment for members and team members.”
And now limits on items hoping to ensure more members are able to purchase merchandise they want and need.
I’m okay with the limits given the circumstances. This way at least we can shop weekly and know there will be something.
For Costco members they are giving members a limit of three fresh meat purchases.
The meat restrictions comes from the outbreaks happening in meat processing plants.
