A Special Message Regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19)

To Our Valued Customers,

At Mother’s Nutritional Center, we treat all our Customers like family. And nothing is as important as keeping our families safe and healthy.

We are also keeping those affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) in our thoughts while we closely watch the evolving situation.

In the meantime, I want to inform you of the proactive steps Mother’s Nutritional Center is taking to ensure the safety in our stores across Southern California. We are closely monitoring the directions from all county health departments on how we can effectively comply with their published safety guidelines.

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene within our stores. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous.

Here are the steps we’re taking to protect our Customers and Team Players:

 

In Our Stores

  • Cleaning commonly used areas more often, including checkout counters, PIN pads, and cleaning shelves when restocking products.
  • We are in the process of installing hand sanitizer stations at the entry point to all our store locations.
  • We have increased the frequency of our routine cleaning procedures which includes wiping down shopping carts, baskets and equipment.
  • Following best practices for safe food handling, as always.
  • We have temporarily removed all the Kid’s Corner toy tables from the lobbies of our stores.
  • A vast majority of our produce is pre-packaged reducing the chances of contamination from outside factors like over-handling or touching.
