Re: Change in Hours of Operation
In an effort to combat increasing gas prices and as a way to reduce store overhead, please be aware that there will be a change in store operating hours effective immediately.
The store will now be open from 9 am to 8 pm Monday through Saturday.
We have decided that the store will not be open for business on Sundays. Store managers will now be required to work four 10 hour days per week. This will ensure that managers are still receiving their normal 40 hour work weeks as well as give them an additional day to spend with family and friends. We will also require that part-time employees consolidate their work weeks into one, two or three day work weeks depending on what their schedule is.
Currently, there will be no store closings; and we do not foresee any new store openings in the immediate future. It is expected that the new hours of store operation will reduce fuel cost for the employees.
