But as phased reopening begins across the U.S., customers will be stepping into an entirely different shopping experience by not actually stepping into the shops at all. That’s because curbside pickup and prepacked orders will be the new norm for non-essential retail stores opening during phase one for many states and counties.

While you may long to go back to perusing the aisles and racks of your favorite local stores, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines still stipulate that large crowds and indoor environment make it all too easy to spread COVID-19. To keep employees and customers safe, officials are planning on keeping all interactions at a minimum by eliminating busy boutiques and long checkout lines, with customers shopping and pre-paying ahead of time. Staff will also be expected to wear face masks, and hand sanitizer will likely be made available for anyone picking up their orders.
