Beginning Thursday, April 9, and out of an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 pandemic, Schnucks will temporarily not allow customers to bring in reusable bags.
While there are no known cases of the virus being spread through the use of reusable bags, Schnucks is taking the extra step as a precautionary measure, the company said.
The supermarket chain also is encouraging customers to wear a face covering for their nose and mouth while shopping.
Schnucks plans to close at 10 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, and will remain closed on Sunday, April 12, in observance of the Easter holiday.
“Our teammates have worked incredibly hard over these past few weeks, and in order to provide many of them with some additional time to rest and recharge, our stores will not reopen until noon on Monday, April 13,” the company announced Wednesday.
