Coronavirus Local Impact

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Even in gloomy weather, people are lining up outside stores to get their weekend shopping in.

Patrons at Home Depot demonstrated their commitment to doing it yourself by lining up in socially distant queues Sunday. Most were out for things they needed at home.

Those in line told 22News they didn’t mind Sunday’s weather after using a sunny Saturday to get outdoors.

“I think it’s fine, I think everyone is trying to adjust and be understandable about the situation,” said Christian Rojas of Sunderland. “I am happy that it’s working out that we have the availability of stores.”

Shoppers also said they appreciated the stores enforcing social distancing protocols, enabling them to shop safely.
