What does shopping look like during COVID-19? Different areas have taken unique approaches to keeping shoppers safe. Locations such as Rockville Town Square, Pike and Rose, and Bethesda Row offer curbside pickup for retail items, as well as food. Rio Lakefront and Downtown Silver Spring, in addition to curb-side pickup, are offering shopping by appointment only. This ensures that stores remain uncrowded and allows for social distancing. Customers are able to call stores that they wish to shop at and set up a time to visit. Masks are required.
