TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A local grocery store is seeing an increase in shoppers, as fewer people travel for the holiday season.

Front End Manager at Community Co-op Market Madelon Givens said shopping looks different because of the pandemic.

"People are doing things non-traditional," Givens said.

Instead of seeing a line wrapped around the store, with people carrying food to make a huge feast, more people are pulling into a parking spot for curbside delivery services.

"Our Curbside service is really banging things out," Givens said. "They're pumping out a lot of orders."

Givens said their free curbside and delivery options were created at the beginning of the pandemic as a way for people to feel safe while getting their groceries.

Now, more are choosing this to avoid the holiday rush.

Community Co-op Market is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and then closed on Christmas Day.
