HEB's McClelland: Stores making changes to keep you safe


Your local HEB is taking steps to keep you safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Those changes will be noticeable if you go to any HEB this morning. Scott McClelland, the President of HEB Food and Drug, told Houston's Morning News there will be a change as to how they let customers into stores.

"We need to have social distancing. We will begin to pulse the number of customers we let into our stores so that there can be a safe distance between people," he explained. "We've put up safety shields at our check stands to provide a barrier between our checkers and cashiers out of an abundance of care."

McCelland also said they have noticed a change in shopping patterns. More people are coming into stores in the morning than in the afternoon so they can get what they need.

"We are not going to run out of food. If you go into our stores at any time of the day they will be food. It may not be exactly what you want for dinner tonight, but there will be food," McClelland explained.

He also said they did not expect people to flood the stores they way they have.

"I thought Harvey was the apex for grocery excitement, but this has set it to a new level," McClelland stated.
