- Please Don’t Stockpile WIC Foods Empty grocery shelves are a common sight right now. If you are not a WIC participant—and are not eligible for WIC benefits—please reconsider purchasing foods with a WIC-approved label next to the price. These foods are for WIC participants who must follow set guidelines for the foods (including brands and sizes) that they can purchase with their WIC benefits. Please be respectful of the needs of your neighbor.

Aldi Stores- Marinette and Green Bay locations: On Tuesdays and Thursdays, ALDI stores will open at 8:30 a.m. and reserve the first hour of business for vulnerable shoppers. This includes senior citizens, expectant mothers and those with underlying health concerns.
Witt’s Piggly Wiggly- Oconto Falls Location: INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE CONSIDERED HIGH RISK BY THE CDC (elderly, immune compromised, those with lung conditions, high blood pressure, etc.) please consider shopping between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE NOT IN THE CDC HIGH RISK CATEGORY please consider shopping after 9:00 a.m.
DOLLAR GENERAL: Dollar General is strongly encouraging that the first hour of operations each day be dedicated solely for the shopping needs of senior customers, who are one of the groups most vulnerable to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Other customers are encouraged to plan their shopping trips around this window of time to allow the most susceptible customers in our communities the ability to shop during the first hour that stores are open.
