Share this article

Lithuanian retailer Maxima has announced that its large-format banners Maxima XX and Maxima XXX will only allow customers with COVID-19 vaccination or re-vaccination certificates, effective 15 November.

The decision follows the government's latest trade regulation amid rising COVID-19 cases and will see both banners operate in the so-called 'green' mode. 

The stores will be open to customers from 8:00 hours to 22:00 hours.

Maxima X will be open to all customers and will operate in 'red' mode. It will be open from 7:00 hours to 23:00 hours.

The move will see most of the 134 smaller format Maxima X stores catering to all customers.

Other Changes

All Maxima stores will remain open every day of the week after 15 November - weekdays, weekends and public holidays – including those in shopping centres.

The retailer has shared the exact list of stores, the epidemiological regime and opening hours from 15 November on its website
