Dierbergs Markets Offers Tips for Shopping Safety In Time For Thanksgiving

For Immediate Release: November 16, 2020

With rising cases in Missouri and Illinois, Dierbergs is updating safety protocols and offering tips for shopping more safely and avoiding crowds in an effort to help keep associates and customers safe while in store.

  1. Dierbergs is requesting one shopper per household when possible.
    This is not always a one-size-fits-all approach, and sometimes exceptions must be made. However when possible, Customers are asked to play a role in social and physical distancing.

  2. Avoid peak shopping hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. by shopping early or later in the day.
    There will be extended hours until midnight on Wednesday, November 25th. The stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

  3. For online web orders, plan ahead.
    Customers placing special orders in time for Thanksgiving will need to do so by Saturday, November 21st. The next available pick-up date will be Saturday, November 28th.

    To avoid lines for picking up special orders, consider scheduling a pickup for Tuesday, November 24th instead.

    For Customers unable to make the deadlines, grab and go prepared food and dessert options will be made available during regular store hours.

  4. Use Shipt for delivery or curbside pick-up for grocery orders.

“Overall, our customers should not experience a big change in our stores,” said Greg Dierberg, CEO & President of Dierbergs Markets. “While we do expect more people shopping in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, with our one shopper per one household request, we feel good about being able to accommodate everyone’s product needs and still maintain safety standards.”
