SALEM — Beginning Thursday, Market Basket stores across the North Shore will limit the number of people allowed inside each supermarket at a time.

The number of customers allowed in will depend on the size of the store, Joseph Schmidt, Market Basket's operations supervisor, said.

A single entrance and exit will be designated for customers at every store. Each customer will be greeted by an employee who will clean and sanitize a carriage for them. 

Market Basket operates 80 supermarkets in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, with local stores in Danvers, Salem and Middleton.
