A lot of big retailers are just now getting around to it.  Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and others just started this past week.  Sure, it would have been great a couple months ago, but better now than never.

It must have been on a store by store basis before. I went to a Staples a couple weeks ago and masks were required. And afterward I went next door to Ezell's Chicken where masks were also required and got so delicious fried chicken for lunch. I don't remember what my point was now, but I want some damn chicken.

Generally, stores were following whatever local/state guidelines were in place. Having a widescale company policy is the new development, and one that's long overdue.

Almost as if a scattershot, local-standards attempt to contain this thing has been a complete disaster.

I made a rather simple device from two large paperclips that keep the straps off of my ears.  Of course, by the time the patent is approved everyone will either be immune or dead.

Don't blame the retailers.

There has been a huge void in leadership in this country by our elected leaders.

The retailers are now stepping forward to provide this leadership.

If retailers had done this at the beginning, I have no doubt laws would have been quickly passed to prevent them from doing this.
