PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Publix is asking all customers to shop as they normally would instead of buying in increased demands.

The supermarket said in a news release that its warehouses and distribution centers are working around the clock to get products to its stores and shelves restocked while conducting preventive cleaning measures to keep customers safe.

Publix also asks customers not to arrive early and wait in line for stores to open. Deliveries are made throughout the day and arriving early doesn't guarantee the availability of a product.

Publix has temporarily adjusted store hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Florida-based supermarket will also start offering senior shopping hours for customers 65 and up. Seniors can shop Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Publix Pharmacy will also be open during that time.
