The COVID-19 pandemic has forced two Tonganoxie restaurants to temporarily close, while others are offering carryout and some delivery options.

Its grocery store also has designated certain shopping hours be reserved for people most susceptible to the virus.

Brothers Market has announced that, effective Thursday, it will be open to senior citizens 65 and older, residents with increased susceptibility to serious illness and expectant mothers from 7-9 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays. It then will be open to the general public 9 a.m.-8 p.m. on those days.

Dollar General’s corporate offices announced its senior hour encouragement in which it strongly encourages the first hour of operations be dedicated solely to senior citizens shopping, along with closing an hour early so that employees can clean and re-stock shelves.

The store will be open to the general public until 8 p.m. Sundays.
