Located on the second floor of the Aventura mall in Miami – near the Andy Warhol statue (he would have loved this) – is a store that’s hoping to sell you everything you need to survive the global pandemic. Welcome to COVID-19 Essentials: A one-stop shop for all your corona needs. Grapefruit-scented sanitizers! Black Lives Matter masks! UV light sterilizers! Infrared thermometers! Shoe cover dispensers! And check out that groovy coronavirus logo! So whimsical!
“The demand was there. Everybody was kind of looking for masks and sanitizers and anything to do with COVID,” Nadav Benimetzky, manager of COVID-19 Essentials, said. “Anything that’s COVID-19 related, we have it.”
“People want to have their own masks customized in a couple minutes. Everyone wants to express their own fashion, and we’re here to really customize the mask, A to Z,”
As you can see…
Benimetzky told Miami reporters that COVID-19 Essentials will stay open for as long as the products its sells are needed.
And in case you missed it, there’s also a kiosk in the Bloomingdale’s wing.
We are truly living in the darkest timeline. Do you think in a year’s time, these types of stores will be everywhere?
