Customers of the Yellowknife Independent grocery stores will soon be required to wear masks, a spokesperson of Rochdi’s Your Independent Grocer confirmed – though they refused to be named until securing more details with Loblaws head office.
The spokesperson said they received notice Wednesday that customers would soon need masks upon entering the store. They couldn’t yet say when that regulation would come into effect.
Glen’s Your Independent Grocer, Yellowknife’s downtown location, has posted a sign informing shoppers of the new requirement. Staff from the downtown location could not be reached for details.
Masks have already been mandatory for Independent Grocer employees since the end of August.
NNSL Media will update the story as more information becomes available.
