In appreciation for our partners’ outstanding service, the Company is giving our partners a special bonus for the extra effort in these uncertain times. This discretionary bonus is equivalent to up to one half week’s pay for all partners who have worked within the last month.

"As our stores are an essential destination for our communities, it’s been amazing to witness our team pull together to serve our customers like never before. We believe it is the right thing to do to give back to our partners as they have demonstrated grit, determination, commitment and care for our guests and communities over the past few weeks."

Our Company has a long tradition of giving back to our partners and we are excited to once again give during this unprecedented time.
