In addition to Lepp Farm Market, which The News reported about on March 16, Ray’s No Frills Abbotsford is also allowing those people an early chance to shop.
Every Monday and Wednesday moving forward will see customers who need assistance, including seniors and people living with disabilities, be allowed to shop before the store officially opens from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. This policy began today (March 18) and will run for the foreseeable future.
