There was a photo of a Walmart I saw today (unknown source) that had the toy aisle roped off.
Why? I understand toys are not necessities but with so many children having to stay at home I don’t see a problem with parents being able to buy them.

Re: Coronavirus and masks in stores

I suspect the backlash from the media and both political parties would have stopped that from ever happening. Everyone would have said it was unjustified, abuse of power, war mongering, etc. Frankly no matter what 4012 does there is a very loud syndicate out there that will say it is wrong. Great l...

Re: Coronavirus and masks in stores

If you are in a crowded supermarket, the 6 feet rule will be meaningless if you are in the store for 30 minutes breathing in the virus. It is based on time. If you breath in the virus for 4 minutes, your exposure is much less. People need to get in the store get what they need and leave as soon as ...

Re: Coronavirus and masks in stores

4012 has been saying this for the last 4 years to try and bring back manufacturing here. The problem is the other elected officials, the ones with those approval ratings in the, like, teens, of both parties, seem to keep doing things that discourage it from happening. I do not know what else it is ...

I just really, really wish we could at least make masks, drugs, vaccines... maybe this virus will teach us a lesson.
Hopefully we do learn a lesson. We used to have laws that at least some essential items had to be manufactured in the U.S. We need to reactivate some those laws.

Re: Coronavirus and masks in stores

Thanks late 1980's and all of the 1990's for shifting so much production out of the US to cheaper places. I assume you're referring to NAFTA? While a lot of unskilled and lower-skilled labor went to Mexico you have to remember that 1.2 million jobs were created in the U.S. producing products that a...

Re: Coronavirus and Empty Restaurants

If one washes their hands properly prior to using the blowers there shouldn't be any germs left to be spread.

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Brea (the original Albertsons DC), La Harbara (ex-Lucky) and Irvine (ex-Lucky) …. The Brea and Irvine sites were sold last year in a lease-salesback deal. Albertsons is still listing jobs at the Brea site, so presumably both will remain long-term. Thanks for clearing that up. Brea is what I mean to...

Re: Coronavirus Fears and Empty Supermarkets

Interesting to think 21 years ago in SoCal there were distros for Albertsons, Lucky, and Vons all separate. Now there is one DC to serve that total store group. I thought there were four distribution centers, although I'm not certain about one of them. Irvine (Originally Lucky) El Monte (Originally...
