Walmart has created a one-hour shopping time just for senior citizens.

The company announced Thursday that is offering special shopping hours every Tuesday for customers ages 60 and older.

“This will start one hour before the store opens,” the statement from Walmart said. “Our pharmacies and vision centers will also be open during this time.”

Walmart has also adjusted its store hours to 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Stores that open later than 7 p.m. are continuing their regular opening hours.

“This will further help associates restock the shelves for customers while continuing to clean and sanitize the store,” the company said on its website. “While the store hours change for customers, our associates will continue to have access to their regular scheduled shifts and full hours.”

Walmart has also implemented item limitations on paper products, milk, eggs, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, water, diapers, wipes, formula and baby food.
