Excellent mask compliance, however.

Not speaking specifically about the Ninja, but products in general: Buy something that does what it does well.
Not an all in one that does 19 things poorly.

I don't know what the actual counts are, but they have gone up. There's a frankly ridiculous number of people in store now.
There's lineups but never for more than a few minutes, compared to the 2 hours it was during the beginning of the pandemic.

Am I the only one that hopes the samples never come back? A crowd of idiots blocking every aisle just to get a taste of something that was poorly cooked.

This is the best way of doing it. You can also ask them to check other locations nearby.
Typically speaking they won't give out pricing though.

Every store is like that now. Surrey was horrible too.

I think giving out a free mask definitely helps here.

Huge lineup outside the Willingdon location. When I saw that I just drove right through the parking lot and left. Didn't even get out of my car.

Went to Ikea Richmond recently. Kept physically bumping into no-mask people in the crowded isles of the store (full parking lot). It seems like COVID is "over". There's a lot of pressure to makeup for lost business - but the (pent-up) demand is certainly playing out too.

For Costco, I used to see employees sanitizing shopping cart handles, people wiping down carts when they enter, 75% mask-wearers, etc. Not anymore.

Fall/winter is going to be interesting to see what happens. Although the COVID-testing lines are getting longer each day at the testing centre, most people just follow BC's advice of "if you're sick, stay home" - and are untested.

I've been to Langley last Sunday and two weeks before that. They offer you a mask before you go in, and a Lysol wipe just inside. No customer limits but people are very respectful.
I went at 4 pm, so an hour before closing, and had no problem finding a parking spot.

Pre-closing is the best time to shop. However, some items (fresh baked goods, roasted chicken, COVID-protection and hygiene products, etc.) might have limited/no supply. One's strategy might demand on one's needs that week.

Same location, went there at about 2:30pm and it took less than 10 min to get in. When I left, there was no line-up at all. Mask compliance around 95%, at the entrance they asked if you have a mask or gave you one, technically everyone inside should have one but well you know how it is. Plenty of hand sanitizer, gloves and masks available. No social distancing at all.
