Supermarkets rank safest retail place by shoppers

Shoppers are feeling safer in supermarkets than other retail venues.  According to a national survey by the digital marketing firm First Insight last week, 54 percent of Americans feel “safe” or “very safe” from COVID-19 when shopping in grocery stores.  Alex Stodola, the manager at Stodola’s IGA in Luxemburg, credits his staff and procedures in making the store as safe as possible for his customers.



Stodola adds that the Kewaunee Artisan Center will be distributing free masks at Stodola’s IGA this Friday from noon until 3:00 pm.  Over 600 masks were handed out in Algoma last Friday.  Supermarkets ranked just ahead of drug stores, 50 percent, and big-box retailers, 45 percent, by respondents in the survey based on feeling safer during shopping.  You can find the complete survey results below.
