The one problem with shopping there is that they don't have much variety in frozen veg. I pointed out that he can buy fresh vegetables but he never noticed because the only fresh veg he likes is zucchini. (That's just the way he is.)
We go to Fred Meyer less often as it's a larger store. They've installed plastic dividers for the cashiers. They also have the best produce prices. We go to the other chain when we only need a few things as it's more expensive. The one in our neighborhood doesn't get busy until late in the day, so early afternoon is fine.
There are no Canadian shoppers crowding the stores. Their travel is limited too.
Well you wanted to know. That's how things are here in Bellingham, WA.
