The Walmart store in Paris has opened its Home and Pharmacy entrance earlier this week and plans to get rid of the one-way aisle markers.
“We have seen that generally, customers have adopted new behaviors and take serious their personal responsibility to wear masks, practice social distancing and use our expanded hours to better spread traffic throughout the day, enabling us to provide them new options, like opening a second entrance and removing barriers at the front of our stores,” the retail giant said in a release.
The company plans to continue its sanitation and social distancing measures along with requiring masks.
Sanitation routines include spraying carts after use and plastic shields at registers. They also plan to double the number of “health ambassadors to staff both entrances.”
The Paris store still hosts a senior shopping hour every Tuesday for customers over the age of 60. The Paris store has the senior shopping hour at 6 a.m. on Tuesdays.
Store hours remain 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. for the foreseeable future.
