Shopping Chalk Art #WordlessWednesday

A store called Home Goods closed, due to Coronavirus, from mid March until last Thursday, when it reopened.

Someone had chalked some art near the store entrance, where people would be social distancing on line to get into the store.  Chalk art is nothing new during the pandemic but this is the first retail example I've seen near where I live in the Binghamton, New York area.
Staying positive can be hard sometimes.

When the store reopened, there was a long line to get in.  The black marks are social distancing markers.

Ariel? With a mask?  Why not.

We in my part of New York State are in "phase 3" of reopening.  Up to now, all our shopping has had to be online, with curbside pickup only, except for "essential" businesses such as those selling food or some other necessities.  Now, stores can be open at reduced capacity.  I haven't tried yet, especially after I saw those lines at the store above (they were closed when I took these pictures) the day they reopened.

Retail art.

  1. I won't be shopping "non-essentials" any time soon (unless I can get into the shop without queuing.

  2. I love those drawings.

    We're not in Phase 3 yet, or anywhere near it.

  3. Would love to stroll through "Home Goods" today.

  4. Cute pavement art. Ariel makes me wonder if it was youngsters who did it rather than employees.

  5. Yes, social distencing, or social distancing as others are wont to say or chalk, has taken over our lives. Will we survive as a species? Is our dna being permanently damaged? Who knows. I need to get myself a box of chalk. We are in phase 3 in Bermuda too.

  6. Love the chalk artwork. We are in phase three here too. I got my nails done yesterday. It was fabulous.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  7. So yesterday I went to pick up a book at the local library where they are servicing people through a drive-up window. I pull up and these cars are staying like ten feet between the cars themselves. Sometimes I wonder about people.

  8. Interesting way to motivate shoppers, while reminding them of the restrictions and precautions too!

    Have a lovely #WW Alana :)

  9. Very clever.

    I figure shopping is like grocery shopping, although there's been nothing I've really needed, so I haven't gone. (Well, I kept someone company in a clothing store, but I didn't get anything.) If you can get it online, why not?
