I think this is definitely the case. We don’t go out much. Just for groceries, medication and some curb-side pick up. Ventured into Home Depot today for some mulch. We thought we could remain outdoors and pick up and pay directly from the outdoor garden centre. They made us go inside, pay, then return to the outdoor garden centre for pick up. Way to go HD!My superstore is now offering Thu pickups (3 days out). Loblaws has a slot for late tonight otherwise tomorrow afternoon. Impressed that they are catching up. Or maybe people are becoming less concerned and are doing more of their own shopping.
in any event, it was my first time in a store without a mask or gloves.
Neighbours I talk to on walks say they’ve had enough. They’ll take their chances going out vs delivery and curb side.
