A sign inside Albertsons advises shoppers to keep a distance of two shopping carts.

Local grocery stores continue holding their own and adapting in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.

There are still no reported cases in Park County.

Matt Welch, the store manager at Town & Country Foods, said supplies are on the increase with delivery trucks arriving on schedule. 

Welch has posted signs for various products with limits on certain products such as toilet paper, milk and flour. 

The limits are suggestions and customers have expressed an appreciation for the posted limits, which keep supplies on the shelves, Welch said.  

The store has changed its hours to allow for more stocking and sanitization. 

The store is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. 

At Albertsons, shoppers are also asked to respect posted limits on certain products and practice social distancing. 

Albertsons adjusted its store hours last week, which are now 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. to allow for more sanitation and increased stocking. 

Store manager Eric Linville was unavailable for comment Wednesday morning.
