These are unprecedented times, and Geopath is prepared to support the OOH industry in whatever ways we can. One of the ways we can provide assistance is through our data and insights, pulled from our own tools, or through our other extensive resources.
In our most recent Friday Fast Fact, we extended our gratitude toward the healthcare professionals and other essential personnel supporting them, that are keeping us all safe and healthy during this time. They’re still out on the roads, going to work, and risking their health to ensure ours. However, for today’s post, we want to focus on another group that deserves recognition, the grocery store employees and other essential personnel supporting these locations.
According to ACS (American Community Survey) estimates, there are almost 3 million workers who are employed in grocery stores around the country. These essential workers are keeping the shelves stocked up and grocery store locations operating, making sure the rest of us can purchase the food, supplies, and other necessities we all need.
They’re still going to work, and for that sacrifice, we thank all those out there that have been working long hours and helping the rest of us during this time.
We know the OOH industry feels the same way. It’s been inspiring to see the OOH industry come together during this time, from thanking healthcare professionals to grocery store employees, and all the other essential workers in between.
So, a much deserved thank you to the essential workers out there supporting all of us, but remember, staying healthy is an even better way to thank them.
