HUNT VALLEY, Md. (WJZ) — Grocery stores are starting to limit the amount of customers allowed inside during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday, about 75 customers lined up outside the entrance to the Wegmans in Hunt Valley.


The store has distancing marks on the floor, and at the checkout lines, cashiers are wiping down the conveyor belt and touchpad in between customers.

Wegmans has closed the self-serve area, cafe seating as well as its in-store pub.

For the latest information on coronavirus go to the Maryland Health Department’s website or call 211. You can find all of WJZ’s coverage on coronavirus in Maryland here.

    You missed the main part of the story–Wegmans gives first priority to InstaCart shoppers, who are shopping for other people. If you go, say, at 4pm, those InstaCart people are flowing in, and you could be standing in line for hours. People with the money and wherewithall to order online get priority–the less advantaged are left out in the cold. When I was waiting (before I gave up, as our line was not moving a bit in 20 min–unlike at Home Depot, where it was well-organized), everyone but a couple people were people of color. It may not have been
    intended to be like that, but the optics are bad.
