You're never selfish for wanting candy.



I went to the one in Sage Hill on Monday and, yes, they have new policies. They only allow so many customers in the store and an employee goes around with you to bag all of your goodies. Obviously, it's not really conducive to browsing and the employee actually asks you what you are looking for. Nonetheless, I didn't notice any stock issues.

Available here online, a bit pricey though.

Actually, yes. I never thought I'd feel this way, but I had a crazy amount of anxiety yesterday when out and about. I have an infant son, a wife on mat leave, and I'm self employed and don't see my industry returning to normal for many months. I have a lot to worry about and getting sick is something I'd like to try an avoid if at all possible.

Tried Amaranth yesterday and they didn't have any. I'll give CN a call, but I'd be surprised if they have it. It's sold out everywhere.

As per previous posts, employees do all the scooping. It's your call, but probably a good option

I saw lysol wipes at Cambrian Pharmacy earlier in the week.

Haven't seen toilet paper or disinfectant cleaning products in our Cranston Sobeys for a couple weeks now even with rationing.

So what's the etiquette when you pass someone in the aisle? Most of these aisle's aren't wide enough for proper distancing.

I pass and face away taking care not to cough or sneeze. It’s about 50/50 whether the other person does too but I’ve seen people adhere to the spacing in lineups at other places more recently. I think more people are starting to take it seriously.

What’s the etiquette on talking at the grocery store. More droplets from mouth talking than breathing through the nose right?

Was in a Superstore this afternoon. They already had their cashier's behind plexiglass and they had toilet paper. No wipes or bleach.

Does it have to be wipes? At our house we have a few spray bottles of bleach and water (100 ml : 900 ml, YMMV) at strategic points and just use that with regularly washed cloths or paper towels.

I find the wipes handy on the go, but prefer the spray at home. Get those bleach particles in the air too!

Same as always. Don't talk to strangers at the grocery store.

Woodbine Safeway was stocking TP when I left there around 6PM today. A few boxes were still being carried on to the floor so there may be hope tomorrow at 8AM when they open for those who are still looking.

The Sobeys on Country Hills Blvd is 24 hrs so I somehow end up there at 2 am from time to time. Doesn't ever seem like too much of a gongshow.

Wow some idiot in Pennsylvania went into a grocery store and intentionally coughed on the produce, bakery, and meat. The store had to throw out US$ 35 000 in food.
