Now, Ira Kress, the interim president of Giant Food, joins Tom to talk about those empty shelves you may have encountered at the grocery store and whether the situation is improving.
Giant has 163 supermarkets in the region and about 20,000 employees. And now, those folks are on the front lines in the battle against Covid-19. They are among the essential employees who are allowed to take public transportation and travel around the state despite stay-at-home orders for everyone else. And they are important links in the supply chain for food, medicine and other essential products.
