Top 10 gallery: In-store safety measures, 'first responder' status for grocery workers dominate coronavirus coverage

The COVID-19 pandemic yet again dominated Supermarket News stories last week — with the exception of one article that made the Top 10 gallery list. But even that article — Save A Lot lands $350 million in new capital — could not escape the biggest story in years when CEO Kenneth McGrath applauded Save A Lot's employees for their work during the crisis.

Another article deserves special notice. That item — Stop & Shop to offer special hours for customers 60 and older — continues to attract attention since it was first published online on March 17.
