Changes at Hy-Vee Due to COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, Hy-Vee is making some changes.

Starting Wednesday, its stores will open at 8 am and close at 8 pm, every day. The goal is to give employees more time to re-stock, and to clean and sanitize the stores. 

The company's convenience stores will keep their normal hours, at least for now. The restaurants will close but food for carry-out will continue to be available. 

And Hy-Vee deliveries will now be made by third-party partners like Shipt and Door Dash (where available) in order to help in-store employees focus on pickup orders and other needs at the stores. And it's asking asking customers who are able to do so to shop in stores so that the available Hy-Vee Aisles Online timeslots can be used for those who are unable to shop for themselves or have been advised by health care professionals to limit their public exposure.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
