Safety first….. Some thoughts from an Essential Worker.

Make a list for the store. Find out what you need ahead of time. Google product names. Have alternatives just in case store is out of your favorite brand.

If you need help from an employee ask them from 6 feet away. We talk to dozens of people everyday, we don’t want to be up close and personal.

If possible, leave your kids at home. (Teenagers too)

You may be bored, but please don’t come in to just browse and end up touching multiple things that you have no intention of buying.

Please, please leave your dog at home unless it is a service animal. This is for always, not just during a pandemic. Under no circumstances should you ever put your dog in a shopping cart. Carts do not get washed.

Please be patient with us, we are understaffed because a lot of our workers are out on leave because they are vulnerable to illnesses.

Please remember that we are worried about our health and the health of our family and friends just like you. Many of us are extremely stressed and trying to not show it to our guests.

Thank You,
Juan Torres
