COVID retail tip


This is a community service and marketing tip that you may want to consider that is now being tried overseas and in Australia.

To help people in the high-risk category for the Coronavirus e.g. elderly, some shops are announcing special hours for these people scheduled just after the shop is cleaned and disinfected. In the USA, it is being done in many stores now.

In Australia, Woolworths will be open for such people starting Tuesday, from 7 am to 8 am for such people, before the general opening at 8 am.

It would be easy to implement as most of us have a regular cleaning service time, so introduce the special opening straight after that; of course, if you have a Woolworths nearby, you probably want to piggyback on their times.  

If you try it out, let me know.


I found this movie that seems now almost too real about what an outbreak of such a disease, Coronavirus, looks like, which I do recommend. It follows the path of the spread of disease and the attempts by medical researchers and public health officials to identify and contain the disease and its effect on the public. I enjoyed it a lot, and now it is worth a look.
