Walmart changed their hours effective today to 7am-8:30pm. Watching that door open at 7 was a sight to behold. There were probably 200 people lined up outside.

Seeing how many seniors have family or aides that do the shopping for them, especially the most at risk seniors, not sure how much help this really is.
Walmart U.S. stores will adjust operating hours to 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Stores that open later than 7 a.m. will continue their regular starting hours.
From March 24 through April 28, Walmart stores will host an hour-long senior shopping event every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older.
This will start one hour before the store opens. Our Pharmacies and Vision Centers will also be open during this time.
Walmart stores will have limits for customers in certain categories including paper products, milk, eggs, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, water, diapers, wipes, formula, and baby food.
Walmart stores will temporarily shut down our Auto Care Centers to allow those associates to focus on stocking and cleaning in the rest of the store.
Also, Vision Centers will operate on a normal schedule, providing essential services only such as glasses repair and helping customers pick up existing orders.
Let’s all take care of each other out there.

One hour for the elderly and infirm is f'ing pathetic. They should get at least a two-hour window.
Just shows you how blind and uncaring big business is.
Technically, it's up to cities and states to decide, but there are some businesses that are universally considered to be essential. These include:
~ Supermarkets and grocery stores
~ Big-box stores
~ Convenience stores and discount stores
~ Garbage collection
~ Healthcare operations
~ Daycare centers
~ Hardware stores
~ Gas stations and auto repair shops
~ Post offices and shipping businesses
~ Laundromats and dry cleaners
~ Veterinary clinics and pet stores
