Friday

So we went to Albertson’s for groceries. Here’s my comparison with our last visit on Monday. They had only one entrance open with a clerk managing the flow to prevent too many people joining in the fun. They moved the grocery carts inside where the tables and chairs for Starbucks were. So one person going out, then let another come in.

They’re allowing seniors (65+) to get a head start between 7 and 9 am. We’re not getting up at 0 dark thirty for the privilege.

Fresh produce seemed to be reasonably well stocked, including bananas. Bread was not so much. They stopped putting out fresh bagels and pastries on the shelf so that customers couldn’t be able to grab and put in a bag. I understand.

Meat section also looked pretty well stocked.

Canned goods including soup shelves are empty.

Paper goods aisle empty.

Still no run on beer, wine or gin. I heard that Cannabis stores are open doing business. We saw one woman who checked out with a single large bottle of vodka. Must have wanted it bad. Didn’t notice the brand, though

The check out queue was better managed. They had one line and a clerk to send the person at the head of the queue to next available cashier. Took us about 10 minutes to check out.

We managed to talk with some of our friends that work there. We learned that they got a $2/hour hazardous pay increase. They deserve it. I thanked them for their service. Our friend Dairy Dan had his trip to Boston cancelled. He had had tickets to a Celtics game. Also, our trip to Boston in May had been cancelled.
