Staying at home is the new normal these days, but people still need to go grocery shopping. Due to COVID-19 precautions, many grocery stores have limited their shopping hours to restock shelves and protect employees. Some stores are even offering exclusive hours for seniors and others vulnerable to infection to shop, to help ensure they get the food, toilet paper and other supplies they made need. Although some supplies are limited, most stores carry everything from fresh produce to canned goods to frozen foods and toiletries.
The Town of Addison compiled a handy resource, so people know where to go to shop local. Due to Dallas county’s shelter-in-place orders, please use caution when grocery shopping and remain at least six feet away from other shoppers and in checkout lines. Wash your hands and sanitize when returning home. Please limit the number of people from your household who go to the store and try to limit shopping to once per week. Additionally, pick-up and delivery orders are options at many places, although they may be delayed due to increased wait times.
