Temporary Store Hours Change: To best support our community and staff, starting Sunday, March 15th, our hours are temporarily changing. Stores will open at 8am and close at 8pm. This change will help our staff better stock our shelves and be available at peak times for customers.

UPDATED March 25, 2020: Please allow 8am-9am, 7 days a week, for Community Care Hour. 9am-8pm, 7 days a week, all customers are welcome. We’re also extending our Senior Discount to all hours, all days to accommodate our senior community. Thank you to everyone for suggesting this: We love seeing our community come together to support one another.
