A Message from Duck Thru about COVID-19


AHOSKIE,  March 30, 2020 –  We have been closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local responses regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). One of our main concerns at Duck Thru has always been to keep our customers and employees healthy and safe. With that in mind, we have paid close attention to how COVID-19 could potentially affect our customers and employees and we have decided to make a few adjustments to our normal operations in order to prioritize the health and safety of our team members and customers.

Please review the following changes and know that we are extremely grateful for the support of our loyal customers and employees during this time.

  • All Duck Thru stores close one hour early for cleaning purposes.
  • Sanitizer stands will be placed inside Duck Thru stores starting the first week of April.
  • Gas pumps and door handles are cleaned every hour.
  • Encouraging staff and customers to practice Social Distancing at their Duck Thru visits.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and we will do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our employees and customers.
