Trader Joe’s has continued to temporarily close select locations in order to properly clean and sanitize the stores.
The company made an announcement on its website:
“At Trader Joe’s, there is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our crew members and customers. We believe in being proactive and transparent in addressing issues, and we value information and clear communication. With this in mind, we have temporarily closed some stores related to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, including for additional precautionary cleaning and sanitization. We have made sure all crew members at the respective locations have been informed and understand the steps to take to best safeguard the health of their communities. While a store is closed, Trader Joe’s pays all crew members for their scheduled shifts.
“While we are working hard to get each store open as soon as possible, we continue to have a good supply of products available in neighboring stores, and encourage you to visit our locations page to find a nearby store ready to welcome you. Thank you for trusting us with your grocery shopping.”
