Amid the mounting concerns over the spread of the coronavirus, Walmart announced nationwide store hour changes that will go into effect on Thursday.

Representatives say in light of Mayor Kawakamiʻs curfew announcement, the Līhuʻe location will close at 8 p.m. All other Hawaiʻi stores will close at 8:30 p.m.

“This will further help associates restock the shelves for customers while continuing to clean and sanitize the store,” Walmart Executive Vice President Dacona Smith said in an announcement.

“While the store hours change for customers, our associates will continue to have access to their regular scheduled shifts and full hours.”

Stores will also be offering a special kūpuna shopping hour on Tuesdays from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., from March 24 until April 28 for customers age 60 and older. Store pharmacies and vision centers will also be open during this time.

Vision centers will operate on their normal schedule, only providing essential services, such as glasses repair and helping customers pick up existing orders. One associate will be available to assist vision care customers, while the other associates will help in the rest of the store.
