Kmart now selling only essential items


Kmart, one of the biggest retail stores on island, is now selling only essential items.

Signs inside the store state that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been restricted from selling any non-essential merchandise at this time.

Non-essential merchandise have been cordoned off to prevent customers from buying them.

Among those available for purchase are the refrigerated food and drinks section, canned goods, snacks and chips, vitamins and supplements section, and cleaning supplies.

Among those closed off are the home, kitchen and bath sections, toys, as well as clothing and fashion accessories.

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero, on Friday, announced that the administration will be adopting tougher measures in light of the continuing spread of COVID-19 on Guam.

According to the governor, many people seem to be ignoring the stay-at-home mandate and continue to go out.

In the mainland, several states have required “big box” stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and yes, Kmart, to stop selling non-essential goods.

Among the items made temporarily unavailable for sale are arts and crafts, beauty materials, carpet and flooring, clothes, purchaser electronics, enjoyment (publications, songs, flicks), furniture, home and backyard garden, jewelry, paint, image services, sporting activities gear, and toys.
