Albertsons named Top Retailer for 2020

Posted by Megan Reinertson on July 24, 2020

Essential Services are synonymous now more than ever with the year 2020.  Everyday items and tasks once seen as instinctual, are now scrutinized and strategized.  The public demands a constant supply of these services but are at the ready to analyze HOW people involved are acting in their surroundings. fridge 1

Here are a few things to consider:

Coming out of COVID-19: Re-opening America

Posted by Megan Reinertson on May 14, 2020

In a world secluded from one-another, some have never felt closer.  It’s been said that ‘It’s sad that national/world disasters bring people together.’  Regardless of the cause, we dictate and share the effect.  It is true we as a society are ready for COVID-19 to be over, but into what type of world are we reentering?  That’s up to us.
