One-Way Aisles and New Cart Rule at Hy-Vee
What do some of the streets in downtown Sioux Falls and the aisles at a Hy-Vee store have in common? One way directions.
As my wife and I go to stores around the Sioux Falls area, we have noticed that more of them are making their aisles one way and now Hy-Vee has joined the list. This is all in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.
According to Dakota News Now, newly installed signage in all its stores will guide shoppers in the proper one-way direction. This effort should stop people from passing each other and make it easier to maintain the recommended six feet distance.
The grocery chain also "strongly encourages" a "one person per cart" rule. The company is asking that only one person per family go inside the store to limit the number of shoppers.
Dakota News Now reports Hy-Vee will install additional temporary window panels on the backside of checkouts to provide extra protection for workers and shoppers.
Hy-Vee announced on Tuesday that they will temporarily limit the number of meat purchases.
