No lines at all at 99 Ranch in Monterey Park, vs. the lines I'd seen at every grocery store I'd passed on the westside. That made this trip worth it.
Definitely kind of unsettling being in a grocery store tho... for the past week I don't think I'd been next to more than ten people in a confined space, and obviously a grocery store has way more people in it than that. Hope the groceries were worth the risk, honestly not sure how I'll feel when it's time to do another grocery run. And this may be the first time I've ever washed all my veggies in hot soapy water after buying. o_0
Stopped at a few other places too, since some other foods aren't really available closer to home. Half and Half may have been an unnecessary stop but it was hard to resist the call of milk tea.
Stay healthy and safe, everyone!
