Early on in the pandemic, DeCicco & Sons was one of the first grocery chains to limit the number of shoppers inside the store, as they closely managed capacity.
DeCicco & Sons says it was among the very first retailers to require all employees to wear masks and personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as installing plexiglass checkout barriers.
Rigorous and thorough cleaning throughout the stores has become part of DeCicco & Sons’ new normal.
Maintaining the high level of customer attentiveness with innumerable staffing challenges and distancing requirements has demanded further innovations from DeCicco & Sons.
Ready-to-eat prepared foods and even some ‘self-servicing’ that all but disappeared during the pandemic are beginning to return, but with a different look than they had in the past.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, DeCicco & Sons has taken a lead in safety protocols including plexiglass barriers at checkout.
