Riverside Market posted an update to its Facebook page on Tuesday, letting potential guests know that its stores had milk and expected a delivery of bread, but that a toilet paper shipment might not arrive and the stores were currently out.  There was also no ground beef or fresh chicken.  Riverside also noted that it had baby formula and diapers.  The store had not posted a more recent update prior to this story.

While several other stores, including Dollar General, Walmart and Target, have announced special shopping hours for seniors and immunocompromised guests, Riverside suggested in its Tuesday post that it could not implement such an event, saying "After a lot of discussion we have no way to control who may and may not come into our stores, so early shopping [for seniors and weakened immuned shoppers] is best."

There's more to the story! Keep reading!

Today, Durand Now is putting a call out to community members to give the first hour of Riverside's daily operation to the segment of our population that might be at increased risk for severe reaction to COVID-19; those 60 years and older and those with underlying medical conditions.  This is also a reminder that many people that suffer from compromised immune systems do not show outward symptoms.  While some may not "look" at risk, they may be, regardless of age.  Do your part during this crisis.  If you're young and healthy, "wait until 8."

Riverside Market opens at 7am.  The store advises guests to call ahead to make sure items are in stock.  The phone number for the Durand store is 989-288-3382.

Dollar General announced that beginning Tuesday March 17th, its stores would dedicate each day's first hour of operation to senior guests.  Dollar General opens at 8am.

Walmart announced on Wednesday that it would host a special shopping hour for seniors each Tuesday beginning at 6am, beginning March 24th.  

Target stores announced a similar initiative, saying it will dedicate its first hour of operation on Wednesdays to senior guests, asking other shoppers to please plan their shopping trips accordingly.

Dollar General, Walmart, Target and Kroger stores have also announced adjustments to their hours of operation in response to the Coronavirus crisis.

There's a lot more from Durand Now to see and hear, including this week's top stories! Keep going!
