When I chose the pick-up option some weeks ago, I experienced significant delays at pick-up, a few substitutions, and entire swaths of not particularly rare items being unavailable. This time I got my things within fifteen minutes of arrival, nothing was unavailable, and a handful of things were substituted with reasonable substitutes. I remembered to have a gratuity available, which is more of a thing to remember now, as I pay for fewer things in cash.
As I drove off, I thought how things were perhaps calming down a bit. Then the radio announced that the nearby federal prison in Fort Worth, roughly an hour's drive away, had a one day count of over 200 new cases of Covid-19 in its federal prison.
