COVID-19 Safety Measures

As an experienced essential business, The Save Mart Companies has remained nimble and moved quickly with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020. We have established enhanced health and safety protocols at all stores. We are taking precautions to keep our customers and employees safe during this time, including:


  • We provide employees with face coverings, hand sanitizer, and gloves upon request.
  • We have installed Plexiglas at our full-service check stands (front and rear-facing), self-service check stands, bakery, deli, and pharmacy counters.
  • Our store teams and entire supply chain are trained and trusted to eliminate the spread of communicable disease in our work every day.
  • Our employees continue to closely monitor their own health.
  • Our stores’ in-store cleaning protocols include disinfecting check stands, shopping carts, high touchpoint areas, and employee common areas regularly.
  • Our generous sick leave policies, coupled with our Employee Assistance Fund, provide support to employees who need to take time off work due to a COVID-19 issue.


Additional Permanent Positions Created

In response to surging customer demand, The Save Mart Companies ramped up its staffing in early Spring 2020. While initially offering part-time temporary positions, as demand remained at record-high levels, the company transitioned 68 percent of its 1,000 new employees to full-time positions.
