How to shop responsibly during Coronageddon
As a retail employee, (Costco), I'm exposed to 1000's of shoppers a day.
There are some avoidable problems we at Costco, and from what I hear, other retailers are seeing:
Groups/families coming in to shop. Please, this is not necessary. I get that you may have to bring someone in if you have no childcare or you are helping your disabled parent. But TRY to just come on your own. You are needlessly exposing the people you bring as well as all the employees. I keep seeing whole families shopping.
Shopping multiple times a week. Please purchase what you need for 2 weeks then STAY HOME!
Using the outing as a social event. I get that you're bored at home, but get what you need and quickly get out. I see people wandering around in groups or running into neighbors and standing around chit-chatting.
Also, be nice to us. We are under a bit of stress, and scared for what we are bringing home to our own families in the way of germs. Most of us are resigned to the fact we will get sick.
When people thank me for being there, it truly touches my heart. We WANT to be there for ya'll.
We DO NOT KNOW when the next shipment of TP is coming in and are not responsible for the limitations on purchases.
Be kind to others as well. This sucks for everyone.
Thanks for listening!
