Also, Route One Fun reader Loretta V. let us know that Franklin’s General Store has a sale on wine — 20% off a case, 10% off 6 bottles. (This was on Monday so call Franklin’s to confirm status.) Mike Franklin said to think of his store as a mini-Walmart — toys, beer, wine, chocolate, candy, greeting cards, stuffed animals, jewelry, etc. etc. And Loretta shared that “there were like 2 people shopping — everyone kept at least 6 ft apart, and a store staffer carried my case into my car.” Way to go, Franklins!

Grocery Store Update time, folks! More requests for toilet paper, eggs, dairy, sanitizing wipes and gels. (On that note, YES!
