The state of Vermont is dropping the hammer on in-person shopping for non-essential goods.
The state released a directive to stores like Walmart, Target, and Costco saying whenever possible, the retailers must stop the sale of nonessential items within the store and require online or telephone ordering, delivery, and curbside pickup instead.
Items that residents won’t be able to buy at the store include arts and crafts, beauty supplies, carpet and flooring, clothing, consumer electronics, entertainment, furniture, home and garden, jewelry, paint, photo services, sports equipment and toys.
The concept is that some people are coming to these stores because they're bored and want to wander around and this will force them to stay away.State spokesperson Lindsay Kurrle said "This volume of shopping traffic in big box stores significantly increases the risk of further spread of this dangerous virus to Vermonters and the viability of Vermont’s health care system.
