Menomonie Market is an essential business open to the public. To provide a safe place for our staff to work and our customers to shop, we require face coverings for all staff and shoppers. To shop inside of our retail space, you must wear a mask, bandana, scarf, plastic shield, or other covering that covers your mouth and nose. If you don’t have a mask, we will give you one.
The EEOC considers COVID-19 a direct threat in the workplace. Under the ADA, businesses may provide reasonable accommodations for those with medical exceptions when there is a direct threat to ensure safety but still allow the provision of an equal opportunity to our store. If you are unable to wear a face covering in the store, are hearing impaired, or simply need additional support to shop, we are providing the following accommodations:
1. Online shopping and curbside pickup. This program is accessible by everyone at shop.mmfc.coop. All products and all forms of payment are possible. You may shop from the comfort of your own home, 24 hours a day. If shopping online poses a technical problem or you need help with payment options, please call us at (715) 231-3663.
2. Face shields. We allow customers to shop in the store using a clear face shield as accommodation for medical conditions that prevent a mask directly over the face. If you don’t have a face shield, we will lend you one for your time in the store.
3. Written instructions. The hearing impaired may request written communication with our staff in the store or through our curbside pickup service.
4. Personalized service. If you cannot utilize the accommodations listed above, our staff is happy to step outside and get a grocery list to shop for you or to put you in touch with a volunteer owner at the co-op who is willing to shop for you.
To discuss this further, or if you have ideas on how we can accommodate you, please be in direct communication with Crystal Halvorson, our General Manager.
