These days it’s cause for alarm.

So the newest Foodland Farms opens in Kapolei today with a unique entry system in place — online reservations to get into a grocery store

As of Tuesday, nearly 700 reservations had been made for opening day, filling all the available slots, Foodland spokeswoman Sheryl Toda said. Reservations for the days to follow are quickly filling as well, she said.

Coronavirus precautions mean the number of shoppers at any one time is limited to 75, with masks required and temperature checks at the door. Some walk-ins will be allowed, but they’ll have to stand in line, and the company hopes the reservation system will keep that imagery to a minimum.
