“Fully vaccinated associates will have a vaccination logo displayed on their name badge,” the statement said.

Customers who haven’t been vaccinated should continue to wear face masks, along with anyone who prefers to do so, according to the statement.

“We will continue to encourage social distancing and provide hand sanitizer, cart wipes and enhanced cleaning procedures in all of our stores,” the statement said.
