Customers will be able to shop in the southeast part of the building, known as the Green and Blue rooms, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Typical safety measures, such as hand sanitizer stations and plexiglass screens at checkout, have been implemented. The number of customers allowed to shop at any one time will also be limited.
