Please help us make Price Chopper stores a safe place for everyone by following these 6 safe shopping tips:

1. Wear a Mask 

Due to local ordinances and state mandates, we require that you wear a mask to help protect others while you're shopping in our stores. See the CDC's resource for DIY face masks.

2. Plan Ahead

Check your store's hours.

Make a list and organize it by store department. We know browsing shelves can be a great experience, but the shorter your visit, the less your potential exposure.

We recommend buying enough to last about a week at a time to limit wasted goods.

3. Go Solo

Consider sending only one person into the store when possible to help protect your family members, our employees, and your neighbors.

4. Practice Social Distancing

Follow our handy one-way markers to keep a safe distance in the aisles. Try to keep a six-foot buffer from others – especially in the checkout lanes.

5. Shop With Your Eyes

Do your best to only touch items you plan to bring home. We know this is a change, but try only inspecting produce visually.

6. Keep Things Clean

We recommend you wash your hands before and after your visit. We've also provided wipes and sanitizing supplies throughout the store.


A little kindness can go a long way. If you see something kind, helpful, or exceptional while shopping, please let the person know – whether that's a teammate or fellow shopper. Use #KCtogether to share stories of kindness you see throughout the community.

The CDC's recommendations for dealing with COVID-19 are rapidly evolving. Please refer to their guidelines for the latest info.
