Big Y World Class Market

All Big Y World Class Market locations go through several daily cleanings designed to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect our customers and employees.

Areas of our enhanced cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting focus include carriages and carriage handles; handle baskets; self-checkout areas; time clocks; phones; customer and employee bathrooms including bathroom door handles; frozen food, dairy, meat, seafood and bakery door handles; all counter tops; all food preparation areas; and employee break rooms.

Our cashiers, service clerks and other frontline staff pause every hour to wipe down and sanitize their work areas as well as to wash their hands. These hourly wipe-downs include registers, register belts, POS screens, cashier and customer displays, EFT terminals and key-pads, and plexiglass shields.

Additional COVID-19 mitigation efforts we are taking include special store hours for seniors and those with compromised immune systems, social distancing reminders, free paper and plastic bags, and plexiglass screens at checkouts. We have closed our cafes, all self-serve drink and coffee areas, all bulk product bins, self-serve product areas such as donuts/bagels/muffins etc., suspended bottle redemption and discontinued operation of blood pressure machines in pharmacies.
