Pledge to #ShopSmart during COVID-19

Help protect yourself and the workers at your local grocery store

How can you #ShopSmart?

1. Wear a mask that completely covers your nose and mouth

Always wear a mask (whether homemade or store-bought) when you shop that covers your nose and mouth.

2. Practice social distancing in stores

Whether you’re standing in line or asking a worker for assistance, keep at least 6ft between yourself and others.

3. Make a list before you shop

A prepared shopping list will minimize your time in the store and possibly reducing exposure.

4. Minimize your time in the store

Make a list, shop solo if possible. Reducing the number of people and time in the grocery store helps you and your grocery worker.

Shopping Smart Means Supporting Your Local Grocery Workers

Watch our Ad:

The word is going out to communities across Arizona: Members of UFCW Local 99 deserve the public’s respect and admiration for their services as “Essential Workers: Now and Always.”

This message is delivered through advertisements sponsored by Local 99 on a variety of digital and print platforms, including AZCentral, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the Arizona Republic, among others.

The ads describe our members’ courageous service over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is showing no signs of going away in the near future.

The advertisements also ask shoppers to thank our members for making food and other essential goods available under difficult circumstances — an important message as contract negotiations continue with Fry’s, Smith’s and Safeway.
