Looks like only 10 peeps in the store at a time. It will become so bad we will no longer be able to shop.

Did you think it was an old post, from before all the restrictions started to happen?

Ours is setup like the game mousetrap!
It's hilarious. Arrows and signs. One person in shopping aisle. And yes no tp to be found!!
Then when you find an open register...they are spraying you down along with the scanner. I left there thinking.. okay I'm sanitized.

They are more likely letting groups of 10 in at a time until a certain capacity is reached, and then limiting it to that group number until 10 leave the store. 10 people shopping in a huge Walmart at a time wouldn't make sense and probably wouldn't make it even worthwhile to have the store open after some point.

That sounds reasonable to me, at least until they figure something else out that works better.

Is Walmart the store where they are planning on having people use the aisles one-way only? That's an interesting plan, don't you think?

Indeed, it is.

The Whole Foods in Alexandria by me has been doing this as well.

There is a limit to how many people they are letting be in the store at once. And they were only allowing people to go into the store as an equal number of people exited the store. This was from my visit there last week, but I can't imagine that its changed.

My grocery store was doing this too. It's not a Walmart.
Kind of feels like waiting in line to get on an amusement park ride...
Except we are standing on the red tape, 6 feet apart.
