FORT ST. JOHN – As a part of ongoing efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, the Fort St. John Save On Foods will join all other locations in the province in operating at 50 per cent capacity until further notice.

“This operating capacity is in line with how we have been operating since the start of the pandemic. We have posted the occupancy count with signage at the front of each store and the teams are working to increase signage in areas that typically see congestion, such as at the front end, or in-service departments like our deli or bakery,” said Save On Foods Media Relations in an email.

“This is all part of our efforts to reinforce that physical distancing is required whenever possible for the safety of both team members and customers and as outlined in our COVID-19 safety plan, which has been re-instated as ordered by our Public Health Officer,” the retailer continued.

In addition to promoting physical distancing, Save on foods locations throughout B.C. will continue operating with the following measures:

“Our store clerks and leaders are doing an amazing job in what continues to be a very difficult time, and we are so grateful to our valued customers for their patience and kindness with our teams when visiting our stores,” the retailer said in an email.
