Giant retailer Walmart mandated face masks in all of its stores across the U.S. starting Wednesday, which brings up a bigger issue. Anyone who has spent more than five minutes in a Walmart or looked for Walmartians online (yes, it’s a thing), knows that some of what passes for clothing in the store shouldn’t be allowed in public. Beyond pajama pants and bikinis, some people wear faux fur chaps, animal suits, and underwear as they shop. If Walmart can’t get customers to wear, you know, clothes, how will they get them to wear masks?
Walmart said about 65% of its over 5,000 U.S. stores, including its wholesale Sam’s Club outlets, are located in areas where there is already some form of government mandate on face coverings, so it decided to roll out the policy across all stores.
The move followed a similar mandate by Best Buy.
