TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENT TO BEGIN TUESDAY, MARCH 17TH

March 16th, 2020 – Today Colemans Grocery announced a temporary dedicated shopping hour
for senior citizens, those with disabilities and the immunocompromised, effective Tuesday,

Colemans stores across the province will open their doors solely to seniors, those with
disabilities and the immunocompromised for the first hour of operation (store hours vary by

more time and space to navigate through our stores to pick up essential supplies,” said Greg
Gill, VP of Marketing for Colemans. “By allowing exclusive access to seniors, those with
disabilities and the immunocompromised, our hope is they can avail of a less stressful shopping
experience.”


The dedicated shopping hour will begin at the commencement of business on Tuesday, March
17th and will be in place until further notice. Colemans is asking that all customers respect this
temporary measure to provide additional time and space for those most vulnerable.

    I think what they mean is if the store open at 8, then from 8 – 9 is for seniors/immunocompromised people.. which means not open to the general public until 9.

    To everyone wondering about when the seniors hour is.. it says RIGHT IN THE ARTICLE:

    Colemans stores across the province will open their doors solely to seniors, those with
    disabilities and the immunocompromised for the FIRST HOUR OF OPERATION. Which means if the store opens at 8, then seniors can shop from 8-9. If the store opens at 7, the seniors can shop from 7-8.

    By seniors do you mean 65 and older?

    They say “first hr of operation”, so for example if they open at 10 am then from 10 am to 11 am is for seniors?

    That’s lovely, but given you didn’t post the hours of operation in this post for any of the locations, that means a person has to go to the store to find out the ‘hours of operation’ in each location… not exactly customer convenient.. Maybe if you promoted your ‘free home delivery” service to seniors, it could be more beneficial all around.

  12. Thankful immune compromised customer

    Pauline if you scroll to the top of this page….all the way up.. you will see on top right hand side the link that says store hours/location. Instead of complaining be happy the service is provided. Or maybe call your fav store and ask.

      Come on here… If you are offering a service. Go all the way and make it convenient. The store hours should be conveniently provided at the bottom of the very post. The reality is: For many seniors, Parkinson, osteoarthritis sufferers with mobility issues, those that are not technologically savvy, caregivers, volunteers, etc. DO NOT know how to navigate through a website, it’s not that simple. My neighbour told me that it takes him an hour to simple turn his computer “on”. He is a cherished war veteran with absolutely no helper, until my anticipated visit. What comes naturally effortless to us may be very challenging and arduous for these fantastic seniors in our lives.

    How about another hour for seniors, etc. late in the day, maybe the last hour? For many of us, 7 am or even 8 am is a hardship.

    Why are your online flyers at each and every location only showing one page of the flyer?
    You said you have stopped printing out flyers for store locations and to view flyers online, but it’s no good when we can only view one page and that’s it!

    I see the question asked a few times but I don’t see any response. What age are you refering to as Senior? For example, when it comes to Senior’s discounts, every store sets their own age for Seniors.

    Some stores consider seniors as being over 55. What is the age range for your company
