I started boycotting Denton Krogers over the Kroger Andy PR bullshit, though I did "unboycott" two weeks ago. (I reserve the right to keep not going back there, of course, Kroger. And, the break, and the break from possible addictiveness of digital coupons was good.)
Then, a couple of weeks ago, I told Walmart I'd was planning on starting to boycott there. Well, I broke it once, and the lack of masking was worse than the first time.
Tom Thumb? Twice in a 24-hour period, people without masks.
[email protected]_Stores Tom Thumb, I guess yr Gainesville TX store still hasn't gotten the message. Went in there abt 30 min ago. Someone was #maskless. I left.— The Notorious Roy G. Biv, GSNRF* 🚩🌻 (@AFCC_Esq) October 3, 2020
You can REQUIRE people who claim a medical exemption to use your pick-up service instead of coming in. (If person did claim)
Unlike Kroger and Wally, its corporate social media folks did respond:
We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We have forwarded this concern over to our proper personnel for review. We hope you will give us another chance in the future as we continue to strive on improving. Thank you for shopping with us. -Joyce— Tom Thumb (@TomThumb_Stores) October 3, 2020
But, back yesterday? And, this:
Whatever talk Tom Thumb corporate may have had with your Gainesville Texas store did NOT take. I saw a whole family in there maskless 10 minutes ago, and other than terminal snowflake-itis, I refuse to accept they have a familywide medical condition. Besides, u can require pickup— The Notorious Roy G. Biv, GSNRF* 🚩🌻 (@AFCC_Esq) October 17, 2020
Corporate followed up with a DM, asking for contact information. Said somebody from the local store would contact me. Well, unless it was during a brief period where my cellphone said "network service unavailable," nobody did. And, corporate didn't DM back after I told them that.
Yes, I know I'm in a fairly small town and county in Texas. But, not THAT small, and less and less removed from the Metroplex. And, COVID cases here are on the rise. COVIDIOTS are still in abundance.
