We should not be lining people up on the sidewalk, even if they are 6 feet apart. It is a public health hazard and unfair for members who cannot stand for extended periods of time.
1) Have members call in (or go online) and select a shopping time. Each household can shop at the Coop once every two weeks. Members have an hour to shop and must arrive within ten minutes of their scheduled time.
2) Members who want to show up “a large” can sign in with their phone number and get a text when there is room in the Coop. They have ten minutes to get to the door to enter; they also have an hour to shop. Shopping “at large” does not count against a household’s once-every-two-week rule.
That’s it. My daughter said it’s good idea; maybe you’ll even use it?
