Since March, people already get use to buy online. Even stores are open, I doubt how many people will go. Like save 200 at the cost getting covid?

I think the challenge is actually for companies. Like how to make sure online system is not crashed, how quick they can fulfill the order

My personal wish is because of this lockdown, i can redeem Canadian tire money online

I purchased a couple things online. Hope online purchase and delivery is not shut down. Things I bought isn't essential but hope someone from the warehouse will still send it out.

Most stores mention 30 days from the time their stores re-opened.

Walmart will be one of the few stores allowed to open, so they will be lined up for sure. Assuming that they aren't limited to essential sales only.

Doug Ford (Premier of Ontario) says he has no appetite to limit stores like Costco & Walmart to essential items only like groceries. He says he spoke to the CEO of Walmart Canada and it was a nightmare in Manitoba. That's not to say he can't or won't change his mind but he's made it clear he's against doing so. As I've said on these boards before, as a Walmart cashier my coworkers and I do not want to get into fights with customers over what's essential and what isn't. If customers refuse to leave the store during a power outage or a fire (trust me, it's happened!) then they won't accept you refusing to sell them something because the government says it isn't essential.

I bet Canadian Tire is kicking themselves for getting rid of the grocery section they had a few years ago.

I guess the idea is Walmart just won't sell those items, as in the section is blocked off completely. But yes, entitled customers at Walmart is a common occurrence.

I guess the same might apply to Costco unfortunately? People buying a TV on say the 28th and just walking out of the store with it in hand?

They sell hardware and car parts, so I do believe they will be allowed to stay open.

When the deepest part of the lockdown happened last spring, Canadian Tire and Home Depot were closed to instore sales, you had to order ahead and pickup outside.

I bought some supplies for a home reno from Canadian Tire, so I remember those times. The impression that I get from what I was reading in the G&M is that they'll be allowed to be open with reduced capacity, but I guess we'll see if that holds.

What are stores in the GTA doing now? They've been in grey for a month, are the malls closed? Other stores?
