|Description||Barney's Convenience Mart and BP Gas Station shuttered during the COVID-19 pandemic. |
This store actually closed just before the pandemic hit. Because of this, I think the Speedway next door and the nearby Circle K have gotten busier.
In particular when I visited the nearby Circle K on May 16, 2020, it got quite packed, making social distancing hard. No other customers I saw were wearing masks there, in stark contrast to the grocery stores I've visited where, anecdotally, it's felt closer to somewhere around half of customers wearing masks vs not (Though I haven't done a hard count).
This is speculation, but perhaps the convenience store clientele is less willing to sacrifice the convenience of not wearing a mask, or perhaps they lack access to a place where they can purchase one.
