(WFSB) – Big Y World Class Market announced on Tuesday that it will close for two days to give its employees a break.

All stores, including Fresh Acres and the Table & Vine flagship store, will close on Easter Sunday, April 12, as well as Monday, April 13.

Big Y Express Gas & Convenience locations will only be closed on Sunday, April 12.

“We want to thank all of our retail heroes,” stated Charles D’Amour, president and CEO of Big Y Foods, Inc. “We hope that this break will allow our employees to spend more time with their loved ones and give them much-needed rest.”

The company said during the break, stores will be restocked and cleaned in preparation for reopening on Tuesday.

After reopening on Tuesday, store hours will remain the same:

  • 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. reserved for seniors and individuals with compromised immune systems.
  • Open to all customers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

This isn't the only grocery store chain to take precautions during the coronavirus pandemic.
