Parish grocers urge one shopper, one cart

OPELOUSAS — St. Landry grocers and other retailers are urging shoppers to use common sense and shop responsibly as coronavirus benefit checks begin to flow into households.
They are urging that only one family member goes to the store to shop for the household and that they limit their purchases to what one grocery cart can hold.
They say they are trying not to limit the number of people allowed into the stores because that could potentially cause a problem with shoppers mingling at close quarters waiting to get in.
