PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A local ShopRite owner is making changes to local stores to protect workers and customers from coronavirus. On Tuesday, Brown’s Super Stores President and CEO Jeffrey Brown announced that his 10 stores will be adding plexiglass shields to all checkouts, pharmacy, customer service and food service registers.

It’s part of an effort to reduce the risk of coughing and sneezing for associates and customers during the COVID-19 outbreak.
