Oh Dear, how are we going to live without Walmart being open at all hours of the day. When they said the beginning of each decade is always a trying time, they weren’t lying. The things all of us are privy to at the moment are being tampered with. Who thought we would be fighting over toilet paper, and almond milk. Honestly pandemics really bring out the reality of everyone’s personalities when stress is involved. Those who you thought were calm and collective beings are actually psychos at the core.
How major stores and companies are going to reconcile and find ways to handle the aftermath of Coronavirus is still a plan in motion. There is obviously no way anyone could have been privy to the knowledge that people would be throwing hands in Walmart over Germ X, but hey it’s a new day. Things are changing by the hour and so Americans aren’t sure if they should panic shop, or just wait it out. On the flipside, is this in a bizarre way a good thing for retailers?
This turn of events might have been the boost some dying retailers were craving for a good while. A specific frozen food that wasn’t in high demand a month ago, is now not on the shelves. Canned items are harder to find, and now nobody is concerned about the luxury side of the mall, they all are obsessed with the cleaning necessities. Do companies even need to invest in commercials anymore? Social media has completed a good percentage of the marketing for these multi million dollar conglomerates.
Still, Walmart is an American staple and it’s known that they only close on Christmas. The craziness that goes down every Christmas Eve because of people losing their minds over the fact they won’t be able to shop on that singular holiday was already a lot to comprehend. Now, we are in totally different waters. Thankfully Walmart is not closing for good, but still shutting down even a few hours a day is a lot for normal folks to accept. What will those of us in small towns do for fun?
What else is going to close? Lord, please don’t let the liquor stores call it quits because then there really is no hope left. How are suburban mothers going to be able to survive without that special margarita every fortnight. We all need a strong glass of wine to get through these tough times. Also, word to the wise go outside and take a nice breather. Staying in the house and indulging in “The Real Housewives” might seem like a good idea day one, but after three it becomes agonizing.
