Target, Walmart, Costco ordered to stop in-person sales of nonessential items

UPDATE: (4-14-20)

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WZTV) - Big box retailers like Target, Walmart and Costco are being ordered to stop in-person sales of nonessential items in some states.

Now, those states include Vermont, Michigan and Colorado.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott added this to his original executive order amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Such nonessential items, as detailed by the state, include things like beauty supplies, arts and crafts, clothes, electronics and more. Customers are asked to buy those products online or curbside pickup.

Rather, according to The Agency of Commerce and Community Development, these stores are being asked to stick to items like food, pharmacy and beverages.

Tennessee remains under a "Stay at Home" order which bans non-essential travel and activities. So far, Tennessee does not have any rules limiting what can be sold inside stores.
