  1. Thank you Kevin for this recap. Very helpful.

    I wonder if you could turn your considerable talents to compiling a list of grocery stores offering:
    — senior hours where we can go in and shop away from the hoards of other younger folks
    — online ordering with either drive by pickup or home delivery.

    My local grocery store that I’ve shopped at for years is working on people being able to order online and then drive by to pickup. They do now also have “senior hours” where we can go in and shop but friends are reporting some younger shoppers are not honoring that.

    1. I would encourage you to check out your neighborhood blog for that information. Local knowledge is incredibly important and tends to be far more accurate for that sort of thing than a city-wide roundup.
