San Angelo: 'Retail-To-Go' Starts Friday


SAN ANGELO, TX – The meticulous task of re-opening the Texas economy took another step in the process on Friday. Governor Greg Abbott’s plan to use the 'retail-to-go' approach in order to get businesses in Texas operating again begins Friday, and businesses will now be allowed to take orders, deliver items to customers’ homes, or have customers pick up their orders in a curbside fashion.

This relaxed set of restrictions will allow all  stores previously deemed nonessential by previous COVID-19 executive orders to start operating once more.

Gov. Abbott said, “Because we’ve seen that this model works while also containing COVID-19, we believe that all stores in Texas to be able to operate retail to go. ” 

All payments, if possible, should be done over the phone or online. However, If non-contact payment is unavailable, all measures should be taken to limit contact during the payment process. When picking an order up curbside, customers should open doors, trunks, or back hatches in order for store employee to transfer purchased items. 

This operational model ensures that contact between all customers and store employees is kept to a bare minimum. Store employees and personnel are required to be trained on  disinfecting and cleaning surfaces.  All employees must be screened for fever and other potential COVID-19 symptoms prior to coming into work, must wear a face covering at all times, and maintain a 6-foot social distance from other employees and customers at all times.

Governor Abbott plans to announce additional details on Monday regarding his ongoing plan to reopen the Texas economy.
