As the pandemic continues to affect millions, businesses try to salvage their losses.
BJ’s Wholesale Club announced on Thursday a couple of changes they were bringing in their company. On a typical day, customers need a membership to shop at the store but the company announced an exception for first responders and healthcare workers.
They will be asked to show id, after which they can enjoy an empty store every Sunday morning from 8 to 9 am as they will be given early entry.
Keeping in mind the vulnerability of the elderly, the store also decided to offer club members aged 60 or above easy access to shop throughout the week, except Sunday, from 8 to 9 am. A four-month free membership has also been offered to the store’s Inner Circle.
The company assured everyone by stating that they were following safety measures in their fight against COVID-19. They further said, during this pandemic all their employees were earning an additional $2 per hour as hazard pay.
