To alleviate the fear of not being able to acquire items from the stores as people are rushing to buy them out beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 the City of Texarkana Arkansas will be providing care packages to Texarkana, Arkansas residents 65 and older.
Citizens can pick up the care packages in the Public Works Department at Arkansas City Hall. A photo ID or driver’s license with a current utility bill will need to be presented at time of pick up. Only one care package per household.
Beginning Wednesday, March 18, Target will reserve the first hour of shopping each Wednesday at stores nationwide for vulnerable guests – including elderly and those with underlying health concerns.

On March 17, we began senior store hours, which are designed to allow some of our most vulnerable neighbors the ability to shop during the first hour that our stores are open to avoid busier and more crowded shopping periods. For customers who can wait an hour, we strongly encourage you to plan your shopping accordingly to help support our at-risk customers.
We know our older customers could be more vulnerable to the coronavirus and to better support them, Walmart is offering special shopping hours. From March 24 through April 28, Walmart stores will host an hour-long senior shopping event every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older.
This will start one hour before the store opens. Our Pharmacies and Vision Centers will also be open during this time.
Special shopping hours for senior citizens from 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday
