As the coronavirus pandemic stretches into its fifth month, each state that had imposed a stay-at-home order or shelter in place is making fateful decisions on reopening. People are allowed, in some places, to hustle out to go back to restaurants and offices and places of worship. Some people have ventured out; some people continue to stay in quarantine as much as possible.

These acts are accompanied by profuse rules and regulations on social distancing, health and safety measures, and reprogrammed shopping procedures—all of which are dependent on shoppers and store employees to both obey and embrace.

We have fashioned an exhaustive list of the companies that have announced reopening plans but as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we would recommend you check with your local store for updated hours and the latest information.

We will keep you posted by continually updating this list as more stores announce their reopening plans. See more COVID-19 shopping tips and deals.
