In addition, Publix pharmacies are also returning to their regular operating hours.
“Thank you for your patience over the past several weeks while we’ve operated under reduced hours,” the company said in a statement.
It adds, “We do understand some customers prefer to shop when the stores are less crowded. We encourage you to shop during the first hour of the day, when we can better accommodate that need.”
