Beginning today, customers and employees of Foodland stores are required to wear masks while inside stores.

Also, customers will be limited to bringing in only one other family member or partner to shop. In its continuing efforts to protect its customers and employees, Foodland will be requiring everyone who enters its stores to wear masks. In addition, customers may bring only one additional person inside the store with them to shop.

Groups of more than two will be prohibited. Both of these policies will go into effect on Monday, April 13. Foodland stores are also monitoring and limiting the number of customers shopping inside the store at one time (limits are determined by sq. ft. of each store), and are asking customers to practice social distancing, maintaining a space of 6 feet between each other, while shopping.

“We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our customers and employees safe during this crisis,” said Jenai S. Wall, Foodland Chairman and CEO. “Our employees play an important role in providing our community the food they need. We want to keep them healthy and ensure our customers feel safe and comfortable in our stores,” continued Wall. “We understand that some of these changes in behavior will be adjustments, and we thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and
understanding.”

Foodland is working urgently to expand its Foodland To You online shopping and pickup or delivery
service (currently available at Foodland Farms Ala Moana, Foodland Farms Pearl City, and launching soon at Foodland Kapolei; visit shop.foodland.com to view Foodland To You). In addition, Foodland will be launching another online shopping and pickup service in efforts to have this service available at more stores.
