Due to the spread of the coronavirus in Lääneranna rural municipality, Lihula and Virtsu Coop started to offer the opportunity to receive the goods from the store door.

From Wednesday, you can see one or another seller walking around Lihula Coop and choosing goods according to the list. Through the list, the goods are placed in a box in the back room, from where they are lifted up the stairs behind the store for an agreed time. The buyer’s name is on the box, he has already paid for the goods online – all he has to do is take the goods home from the store.

On Wednesday, one person bought food stuff from Lihula in this way, and on Thursday already three people. Virtsu Coop also sells goods in the same way. Only bread and sausage have not been bought in this way. “Still a whole week’s supply of food,” said Marika Mäger, deputy manager of Lihula Coop’s store

The store offered the opportunity to buy food in this way, especially for those who have to stay at home until it is clear whether they are infected with the coronavirus or not. You can go outside, but it is not wise to come to the store.

Mäger said that already during the emergency situation in March, they were thinking about the possibility of contactless shopping, but then it remained there. “Now customers started to get interested,” said Mäger. While in the spring the coronavirus infection remained within the local care home, it is now more widespread in the municipality. In the last ten days, more than 70 people have been infected with the coronavirus in the West Bank, especially in Lihula. There are also many who need to stay in close contact at home.
