Black Friday might pose a bit more risk than usual.

When the mention of Black Friday arises, the common tales of horror usually revolve around incidents like stampedes, quarrels, excruciatingly extensive queues, and unhygienic individuals. Fortunately, such events have gradually become less frequent over the years as people embrace a more orderly approach. However, with the ongoing global pandemic, a different scenario is at hand. I’ve already completed my holiday shopping, having opted for online purchases. Yet, if you absolutely must step into a physical store to make a purchase this year, taking extra safety measures is imperative. Apart from the risk of COVID-19, heightened anxiety levels due to the quarantine may lead to potential altercations. It’s wise to exercise caution and prioritize safety.

Prior to entering the store, ensure you have a clear idea of what you need, its location within the store, and the price you are willing to pay. Aimless wandering in the store is out of the question. Not only does it increase the risk of COVID exposure, but you may also obstruct someone else’s path. Maintain strict focus on your objective, swiftly make your purchase, and head back home. Most likely, masks will be mandatory in all establishments. While a standard mask is better than nothing, if you’re fortunate enough to possess a ventilated mask like an N95, it would be wise to utilize it at this time.

During the holiday season, many retailers are offering curbside pickup services, which you should make use of. Simply place your order online, visit the store, and wait until an employee brings your order to you. This minimizes your interactions with others to the bare minimum. While the waiting time may be slightly longer, take the opportunity to listen to music and practice patience.

Lastly, if you need to visit multiple stores, aim to do so in one trip. Ideally, sticking to one store is recommended, but if visiting others is unavoidable, consolidating your visits into a single outing is preferable. It may be a tiresome endeavor, and I won’t sugarcoat it by claiming it’s the safest approach, but the allure of good bargains can be tempting. Remember, prioritize your well-being above all else.
