Sunbury, Pa. -- Weis Markets will pay its store-level hourly, paid associates an additional $2 per hour as store continues to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 containment measures. The temporary increase will go into effect Sunday, March 22, according to Weis Markets spokesman, Dennis Curtin.
In a letter to store-level, hourly paid associates issued on Saturday, company Chairman and CEO Jonathan Weis said, “I know how hard it has been to remain in stock on the high-demand products customers are looking for and that serving them during these stressful times isn’t always easy.
