CASPER Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) A handful of customers stop into Grant Street Grocery and Market for specialty cheese and meat. One customer leaves with the limit of six of something they usually don’t have—toilet paper.
Co-owner Lindsey Grant said they haven’t seen as much panic buying as the bigger chains, but are seeing lots of new customers who need what they are out of.
“We are a smaller shop so there are not as many people in at any given time so we see a lot of our older patrons and neighbors coming by to shop safely,” Grant said.
This local grocery store is an essential service and Grant added they will do what they can to help the community.
There have been a handful of changes they’ve made since the outbreak of COVID-19. Grant said they started stocking produce which they normally don’t have.
“Right now I have apples, bananas and potatoes. We’ve been trying to supply some of the staples that people need,” Grant said.
She added that their changes have been stressful, but helping the community is rewarding.
“It’s time to really step up and be responsible for our community,” Grant said.
