Rural grocery store closure effects

Albuquerque,NM  (KKOB) —  Lines begin to form and people are forced to travel further and further to get basic necessities.

These are some of the consequences when grocery stores in rural parts of the state are forced to close down when complying with the public health orders.

In a recent tweet, New Mexico State Senator Joe Cervantes said that ” Santa Fe needs more common sense”.

He fears that the recent closing of one of the Albertsons grocery stores in Las Cruces could portend people having to drive to El Paso, a Covid hotspot, to get their groceries, if the trend continues.
