WALMART LIMITS SHOPPERS | Only 5 Customers Allowed Per 1000 Sq Ft at One Time



5 CUSTOMERS ALLOWED PER 1,000 SQ FT OF STORE SPACE

On Friday Walmart announced it will start limiting the number of customers allowed in its stores starting Saturday, April 4. A press release stated that Walmart employees will only allow five customers inside per 1,000 sq ft of store space, which equals about 20 percent of a store’s usual capacity. A Walmart Supercenter's average size is around 180,000 square feet.


Customers will be asked to stand in lines outside of the store at a social distance of six feet apart once the store reaches capacity, Many stores have already marked the sidewalks with signage. As one customer exits the store, associates will allow one more customer inside.


All aisles will be marked as one-way thoroughfares to limit contact between customers. Some stores may also begin selling only essential items. See the full Walmart press release here.
