Walmart to limit number of customers in stores amid COVID-19 pandemic


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – All Walmart stores will begin limiting the number of customers in their stores starting Saturday.

Customers will be let in through a single entrance one-by-one. Walmart said these lines will usually start on the grocery side at Supercenters.

The number of total customers allowed inside will be about 20 percent of a store’s normal capacity.

Those waiting in line outside will stand six feet apart, Walmart said.

“All aisles will be marked as one-way thoroughfares to limit contact between customers. Some stores may also begin selling only essential items,” Walmart said.

A new customer will be allowed into as a customer exits.

Five customers will be allowed inside per 1,000 square feet of store space.
