Grocery shopping this morning in Giant

I went to Giant to replenish my supplies this morning and considering the situation we are all in right now, they are doing it pretty well.

They are only limiting 100 shoppers every half an hour. 

On entry, my temperature was taken and sanitizer squirted onto my hands. I was then given a green tag with a number and "30 minutes" printed on it.

Just as I was wondering how they are going to enforce the 30 minutes, they started announcing that those with the green tags are to proceed to the payment counters immediately. Looks like I've used up my 30 minutes. Brilliant.

I had all the stuff I needed according to my shopping list except for a few items and off I went to the payment counter, and there wasn't even a line. 

But as I proceed to pay, a line began to form but it wasn't long. It was like the pre-coronavirus days except we are more focussed and no one was talking to each other. 

I then noticed that the tags are in 3 colors. I figured that when I go there again next week, provided they still maintain the same system, I'd arrive 5 to 10 minutes before the half an hour to the hour and have my shopping list ready. 

Shopping has certainly changed. Life has definitely changed.
