    CHICAGO (CBS) — On Friday, the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago are entering a full reopening – with full capacity for sports games, businesses, and restaurants. As CBS 2’s Marissa Parra reported Thursday night, entering this phase means a bittersweet farewell for some. READ MORE: COVID-19 In Illinois: Infection Rate Remains At All-Time Low; Hospitalizations Reach New Low In August 2020, Parra talked with Anisa Ali, who was trailblazing with her new store, Masks & More Outlet. She called it a pop-up store for masks. “Obviously, the world has changed,” Ali said back then. “Who would have thought we’d see a store called Masks & More?” The first store was tucked in a strip mall in Orland Park, and the items flying off the shelves at the time gave a peek into a world we wouldn’t have recognized a year before that. Thermometers, hand wipes, industrial disinfectant made in Illinois, and hand sanitizer produced in nearby Tinley Park were among the items for sale. Stores also later opened in Tinley Park and Frankfort. Now, the world has...

    Los Angeles and other California cities are currently getting “crushed” by the coronavirus, with ICU bed availability down to 3 percent in the state as of Saturday, December 19th. The state has issued a regional stay home order in effect for at least three weeks that will only lift when ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15 percent. Meanwhile, the UK has issued belated lockdown orders due to a spike in cases and a new, fast-spreading COVID-19 strain. The closing comes at one of the busiest times of the year for retail stores, just four days ahead of Christmas — which takes place on a Friday this year. However, as Apple points out on its retail website, you can still pick up orders made online. It will also will honor previously scheduled in-store Genius support appointments and one-on-one shopping sessions reserved with a specialist before December 22nd.
    National Review Biden Energy Policies Will Make Blue New Mexico See Red Lew Wallace, the former territorial governor of New Mexico (and author of Ben Hur), once said, “Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.”In so many ways Wallace was prescient about this beautiful, poor, and unique state in the American Southwest. One “calculation” about modern politics that would especially perplex him is the fact that a relatively poor but oil-rich Western state elects politicians that are so directly at odds with its economic best interest.After Texas and North Dakota, New Mexico is the third-largest oil-producing state in the U.S. The oil and gas industries combine to generate roughly 40 percent of its annual budget. Furthermore, New Mexico’s oil and gas resources are heavily concentrated on lands managed by the federal government. The central role of energy, especially energy extracted within the state’s borders and controlled by federal policy-makers, might lead one to believe that New Mexicans would vote for pro-energy Republicans in federal elections.Instead, New Mexico has become a safely blue state. It narrowly went for...

    During an October 9 press conference about COVID-19, Colorado Governor Jared Polis announced that he will extend the statewide order to wear facial coverings in public places for another thirty days; it was set to expire on Monday, October 12. He contextualized the decision by noting that the state is currently experiencing the most problematic data related to the novel coronavirus since July and August. "We need to be better at wearing masks — not because I say to do it or because public-health officials say to do it," Polis allowed. "It's because you care about your health and your family and your neighbors and your job. That's why we're doing it." At the outset of his remarks, Polis revealed that 834 new cases of the virus were reported on the 9th, with the total being similar to counts in recent days. Many of these infections will inevitably translate into an increase in hospitalizations, and Polis pointed out that this scenario carries with it the possibility of the state's health-care system being overwhelmed in ways that could make effective treatment...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Summer’s last hurrah will look different this year inside your favorite stores. With prices slashed, retail experts believe Labor Day sales may be a sign of things to come. WCCO found retailers using the pandemic as a way to plan for a permanent change.

Kamara admits her spending habits have changed since March.  Still, not seeing a time when things return to the way they were.

    Walmart will reportedly no longer display the Mississippi state flag in its stores. The company is separately reviewing whether products in Canada featuring the phrase “All Lives Matter” breached its terms, Reuters reported. The decision to no longer display the Mississippi flag comes as the state debates whether to change the flag, which features a confederate flag emblem, according to Reuters. “We know the design of the Mississippi state flag is being discussed by various stakeholders,” a Walmart spokesperson said in an emailed statement to CBS MoneyWatch. “While the issue continues to be discussed, we’ve made the decision to remove the Mississippi state flag from display in its current form from our stores.” The state flag of Mississippi, which incorporates the flag of the Confederate States of America in the top left corner, is displayed with the flags of the other 49 states and territories in the tunnel connecting the senate office building and the U.S. Capitol June 23, 2015 in Washington, DC.

    New York (CNN Business)Walmart normally displays the local state flag in its US stores, but that is no longer the case in Mississippi. The retailer has stopped displaying the Mississippi state flag — which includes the Confederate battle flag — in stores because of a debate over changing the design of the flag, Walmart (WMT) said Tuesday. The decision comes amid a renewed effort nationwide to remove memorials to the Confederacy as the nation grapples with the intertwined legacies of institutionalized racism and police brutality. NASCAR banned the Confederate flag at races, and the US Navy and Marines have also moved to ban the Confederate flag from public display."We know the design of the Mississippi state flag is being discussed by various stakeholders," Walmart said in a statement to CNN Business. "While the issue continues to be discussed, we've made the decision to remove the Mississippi state flag from display in its current form from our stores."While the conversation over changing the Mississippi state flag is not new, a bipartisan group of Mississippi lawmakers is again pushing to remove the...
    Walmart will no longer display the Mississippi state flag “in its current form” at its stores, a company spokesperson told The Hill Tuesday. Walmart spokesman Lorenzo Lopez said the retail company decided to remove the Mississippi state flag, which includes the Confederate emblem.  “We know the design of the Mississippi state flag is being discussed by various stakeholders,” Lopez said in a statement. “While the issue continues to be discussed, we’ve made the decision to remove the Mississippi state flag from display in its current form from our stores. “We believe it’s the right thing to do, and is consistent with Walmart’s position to not sell merchandise with the confederate flag from stores and online sites, as part of our commitment to provide a welcoming and inclusive experience for all of our customers in the communities we serve,” Lopez continued. Walmart spokesperson Anne Hatfield told Memphis newspaper Commercial Appeal that the Mississippi state flags were removed “a couple of weeks ago.”  Calls for changes to the Mississippi state flag come as protests requesting racial justice have erupted across the country...
