ITA. During covid, DH and I voluntarily self isolated for something like eight weeks and I only ordered remotely and cooked exclusively. Now that it’s been safer in NYC, I try to support local business. But, I go to buy necessities in off hours and am in and out very quickly. I haven’t gone into department stores or big chain stores. I don’t really go into Whole Foods much anymore. I’d rather go into boutiques and prefer ones where I already have relationships and can merely text an SA, not have to make a formal appt.I wear a washable mask and washable touch screen gannett brand gloves.I go to shops in my town more than usual.
Because all the shops are struggling now.
I see it as my duty to support them now.
