ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Starting Monday Dierbergs, has joined Schnucks in limiting the number of customers inside its stores to just one per household.
All 23 Dierbergs Markets locations in Missouri and its two Illinois locations will begin limiting the number of customers allowed inside at any given time. Schnucks started the same policy at its stores on Saturday.
Also at Dierbergs, once a store has reached capacity, waiting lines will begin forming at clearly designated entrances outside of the store.
The increases come as Missouri residents prepare to live under a statewide stay-at-home order, which requires them to stay home except for essential needs, such as buying groceries. The order also requires public schools to stay closed, bans visits to nursing homes, and limits the number of customers allowed in grocery stores and other essential businesses.
