This will be the return of indoor distribution. Everything has been done outdoors for the past two years. The client choice model allows shoppers more options in what they receive. The lineup will still take place outside and only five people will be allowed inside at a time. Participants will then list what they want while a shopper retrieves those items. That process will take place three times in general, produce and bakery. The shopper will then deliver items to customers in their car.
