Germany
April 5, 2021 4:37am CST
Hello Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to all my dear mylotters Because of pandemic a lot of things changed and I`m curious to know if mylotters do buy things online or supermarket. Me I buy in both because there are still things I can`t buy online and it is available in the supermarket or shops. Before pandemic I really love shopping at the malls to buy some clothes and I still love now but having a hard time with the social distancing. That`s why if I can buy it online. I`ll buy it online. How about you my dear mylotters? Where do you buy things now? in the supermarkets/shops or online? I hope you can share it with me here Have a great day and Happy mylotting Photo: google

@LadyDuck Oh That`s true. I also love buying things online if there`s available schedule for delivery. Lately, It`s hard to get schedule here and have no choice but to go to supermarket to buy the things I need

Most are now online bought. We seldom go out of the house since holy we decided to remain indoors all the time because of the cases rising again. I remember getting out Early Last Easter Sunday to buy some vegetables and fruits for a short while.

@m_audrey6788 Yeah I guess my wife did experience getting a can of fruit that had already ballooned already. We discarded it since she already opened the can

Mostly I am shopping from supermarkets. I have bought online as well but some special items alone. To be very frank after this pandemic, I am shopping only for those items for kitchen and home. No other kind of shoppings

@m_audrey6788 I go to the supermarket to buy things because I like to see what they have and get what I need. I also go to stores. There are certain things that someone helps me get online that I cannot buy in person.

@m_audrey6788 What do you mean a control? I try and stay away from people as much as I can and not always easy. I was out today and it is very hard because of this virus because many do not wear masks or social distance and so I literally go in the street to get away from people. I would say I have an allergy to them right now.

I buy some food stuff in the grocery store. If what I need is available online then I shop online. I also go to our local wet market just walking distance from my home. There is also a mobile market that sells fresh vegetables, fruits that comes every week to our community. It's really very convenient.

@m_audrey6788 Yes there are controls in our grocery stores. Aside from the minimum health protocols before allowing entry to malls ... forms have to be filled up for contact tracing and temperatures have to be checked. Before entering the grocery section again forms have to be filled for contact tracing and then again temperatures are checked.But what we buy is not controlled anymore.

@gamayngbaki Oh my. That`s very difficult. Here, we don`t have too much control like that as long as we are wearing masks and watching out for social distancing. Then, that`s good. I`m sure people who buys in the supermaket are less now

@m_audrey6788 yes, temp checks and contract tracing forms before you enter. Back in the day, they limit the people inside so you had to wait in line outside.

I still do all my grocery shopping in regular stores, with or without pandemic I don’t care But like you said, because of everything going on I’ve been running into some problems. My two go-to stores have always been Meijer and Kroger. Meijer for their awesome cat food selection, and Kroger because that’s where I get my Aloha bars. Only one problem... no, make that two problems. Meijer’s cat food selection has gone wayyy down, shelves are almost empty these days. And Kroger only has the stupid peanut butter Alohas because some thief keeps buying out all the chocolate ones. Every. Single. Time. 9 million peanut butter bars but zero chocolate. It’s crazy I check every Monday. It’s as if somebody stole my whole idea. Because nobody cared about those chocolate Aloha bars until I started liking them. They’re expensive. Even more expensive online.

Oh sorry for that. I hope they will make more stocks for those who can`t buy that item of yours. It is really sad that food production can`t meet all the demands of the buyers I`m just curious is there a control in the supermarkets in your area?

@m_audrey6788 Oh, do you mean like a limit on how many items a person can buy? (On certain items). Yeah I’ve seen signs that say “Due to high demand there is a limit of 3 purchases...etc.” but usually around the disinfecting supplies and things like that. Never my Aloha bars, I was the only one who liked them. Until the copycat came along.

I still prefer and go to the bricks and mortar stores. I buy some things online, but very few things. I want to touch it, feel it, and see it. And I like to price shop which is harder to do online.
