HyVee stores announce exciting innovation
Storm Lake Radio reports that Hy-Vee will soon become the first grocery chain to implement an automated cleaning system that fully cleans and sanitizes shopping carts after every use.By mid-November, more than 200 Hy-Vee stores across its eight-state region will have a Sterile Cart system in operation. The innovative system cleans several carts quickly and consistently, eliminating the need for store employees to manually clean each cart throughout the day. Additionally, it cleans and sanitizes the entire cart, and not just the handles and high-touch areas. The Sterile Cart system uses a low-pressure spray system and a dry-in-place disinfectant. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Hy-Vee stores have regularly cleaned carts throughout the day, and have sanitation wipes available where customers grab a cart.
