Heading to Best Buy-Better Mask Up
Again, the controversy over a mask. There have been several stores that have already required or have strongly requested customers to wear a mask while shopping in their stores. Starbucks made it a requirement last week if you are going INTO the store to order your coffee. You can still go through the drive-thru without one if you'd prefer.
Now, Best Buy has gotten on board with the mask requirement. Starting today (Wednesday) customers will be required to wear a mask if you are planning to shop inside the store.
At least they aren't charging you for a mask if you don't already have one on hand. So there's that. And get ready for Wal Mart to put a mask mandate into place soon as well. That one isn't official...yet. But here's what the CEO had to say according to CNN.com:
On Monday, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon told Bloomberg that a mandate requiring customers to wear masks in the company's stores is something "that's on our minds." Right now, Walmart customers must wear a mask before entering one of 3,700 Walmart locations "where either a governor or someone else has mandated it," according to McMillon.
I have a feeling that even if Governor Walz doesn't make a statewide mandate for masks, retailers will soon begin to require them for their customers. Most retailers are already requiring them for their employees.
