Walmart to Limit in Store Customers

Joe Denoyer - April 3, 2020 5:33 pm

Starting Saturday April 4th, Walmart will limit the number of customers who can be in a store at once. Stores will now allow no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a given time, roughly 20 percent of a store’s capacity.

To manage this restriction, the associates at a store will mark a queue at a single-entry door (in most cases the Grocery entrance) and direct arriving customers there, where they will be admitted one-by-one and counted. Associates and signage will remind customers of the importance of social distancing while they’re waiting to enter a store – especially before it opens in the morning.

Once a store reaches its capacity, customers will be admitted inside on a “1-out-1-in” basis.

Walmart will also institute one-way movement through our aisles next week in a number of stores, using floor markers and direction from associates. Walmart expects this to help more customers avoid coming into close contact with others as they shop.
