A supermarket in La Habra is trying to help local seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic by opening its doors a half-hour early each day exclusively for shoppers 65 and older.
La Habra City Councilman Jose Medrano posted a video on Facebook in which he helped store manager Joshua Martinez announce the plan at the Northgate Market at Whittier Boulevard and Idaho Street.
Between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., “We’re going to have (shopping) exclusive for seniors 65 and older,” Gonzalez said. “We will help them if they need any support shopping.”
Seniors need only to bring an ID to prove their age.
“We’ll open the doors for everyone else at 8 a.m.,” Gonzalez said.
Medrano thanked the supermarket for its help.
“Northgate is out here again, being a good community partner,” he said.
The location is in northern Orange County, about 17 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
