Keeping our Stores Clean and Safe for our Associates and Customers!
“By direction of the State of Ohio’s Stay at Home Order, Acme Fresh Market asks its great customers to allow the 7-8am grocery shopping hour to be reserved for our most vulnerable customers,” said Katie Swartz, Vice President of Marketing.
Acme Fresh Market is continuing to act swiftly to implement social distancing measures. Acme has added visual reminders to encourage social distancing in its stores, including taped lines every six feet at key locations. These taped lines will be in place at customer service, pharmacy counters, and checkout lanes. Acme respectfully requests that customers and associates respect the six foot minimum distance.
This week, Acme installed temporary plastic shields at registers to provide a physical barrier between the cashiers and customers. Acme also implemented “Night and Day” scheduling, to reduce the number of associates in the store at any time. In addition to social distancing, Acme also continues to increase its cleaning of hard surfaces. Stores are cleaned and sanitized with hospital-grade disinfectants each evening. Additionally, carts and hand baskets are cleaned and sanitized overnight.
Acme Fresh Market politely requests that customers not bring re-usable bags or cloth bags to the stores in the spirit of “Social Distancing” and minimizing handling exposures to associates.
“Acme Fresh Market is guided by our mission and responsibility to feed the families of our community. Every step we are taking is to ensure that our stores are clean and safe for our associates and customers,” said Nick Albrecht, President of Acme Fresh Market.
The Fred W. Albrecht Grocery Company operates 16 Acme Fresh Market stores in Summit, Stark, Portage and Cuyahoga counties. The company, founded in 1891, is American owned and family-operated. It is very proud of its longstanding traditions of innovative food merchandising and leadership in the community. Acme Fresh Markets has 2,200 associates focused on feeding the families of our community for over 125 years.
