    Open for Business – A Blueprint for Shopping Safe

    America’s retailers have been on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, with grocers,
    pharmacies, and other retailers working hard to make sure every family has what they
    need as America has stayed home. However, many retailers were required to shut down
