Sam’s Club Starts ‘Hero Hours’ For Non-Member Healthcare Workers
Starting this week, Sam's Club will begin their "Hero Hours" for healthcare workers to shop, even if they're not a member. Sam's Club locations have already implemented early shopping hours for those at high-risk for contracting the novel coronavirus. Now, they're doing even more by supporting healthcare workers with their "Hero Hours" on Sunday.
From 8-10 a.m. starting this Sunday, April 19th and every Sunday until further notice, Sam's Club will be having Hero Hours. During this time, first responders and healthcare workers will be able to shop before the stores open to the public. Sam's Club will be providing masks for shoppers and social distancing rules will be enforced. The company said they want to help and thank these heroes for all their hard work. While answering questions on Twitter, the company said that you don't need to be a member to participate and that they consider healthcare workers to be:
"anyone who delivers care and services to the sick and ailing either directly as doctors and nurses or indirectly as aides, helpers, laboratory technicians, or even medical waste handlers who are helping us fight this virus."
