The United Family’s Grocery Stores Return to Regular Store Hours Starting May 1st
The United Family issued a press release on Wednesday, April 29th, announcing that stores will be returning to normal operating hours starting on May 1st.
This move will return Lubbock's United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, United Express and Albertsons Market locations to their pre-coronavirus pandemic business hours. However, several additional precautions are still being implemented at the stores, including that workers are required to wear facial coverings and must be screened for COVID-19 ahead of their shifts.

The press release reads as follows:
Effective on Friday, May 1, United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, United Express and Albertsons Market will return to regular hours of operation in order to serve additional guests, while continuing to limit the number of people in the store at one time. Stores will continue the designated shopping time for guests over the age of 60 and for people with compromised immune systems on Monday and Thursday mornings from 7 to 9 a.m.
One-way aisles, limitations to the number of guests allowed in the store and enhanced sanitation and social distancing practices will continue. All team members are required to wear facial coverings while at work and the public is highly encouraged to wear a facial covering when shopping. Team members will continue COVID-19 screening measures prior to each shift.
Chris James, chief operations officer for The United Family said, “We are remaining as vigilant as ever with all of the sanitation and social distancing practices we began over the last few weeks. As stay-at-home orders begin to relax, we know we will have more guests in our stores, and it is more important than ever for our team members and our guests to adhere to the CDC recommendations.” “Our team members are wearing masks at work to protect our guests and we ask our guests to consider doing the same. I wear a mask to protect you, and you wear a mask to protect me,” James added.
