I mentioned yesterday that I thought all the grocery stores should set aside special hours for the elderly and disabled during this period. It’s been crazy in the stores, and I worry about my parents, who are in their late 80s, trying to fight those crowds just to pick up some food and medicine.
I’m glad to report that several chains have done that, including:
Safeway and Von’s: 2 hours each Tuesday and Thursday morning.
Target: First hour of business each Wednesday.
Whole Foods: One hour early each day.
