TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

Community Co-Op Market says, "We're Open, Tallahassee!"

While many stores are closing their doors during the coronavirus pandemic, grocery stores are keeping their doors open.

Grocery stores are busy. That's why Community Co-Op Market in Tallahassee says it's more important than ever for them to take necessary steps to keep employees and shoppers healthy.

The grocery store has installed plastic sheet barriers at registers, to reduce the contact between customers and employees. They've also spaced out their registers to comply with social distancing.

In addition, they're offering gloves for customers to use, and reserving the first hour of each day to seniors, disabled, and immuno-compromised shoppers.

"It's definitely a change, it was a very fast change and it affects everyone, so we all feel like it's important because, you know, we are not immune because we are working here. It affects us as well, so it benefits everyone to be as safe as we can," said Madelon Givens, a front end manager at Community Co-Op Market. "We're letting everyone know we are here, open for business, and it's business as usual as we can be."

Community Co-Op Market is located on Apalachee Parkway.

We've made it easy for business owners to sign up.
