LIVE LINEUPS REPORTS ON THE WAIT TIME TO GET INTO STORES
A new Canadian-developed web app is now available to let you know what the estimated wait time is to get into grocery stores.
It’s called Live Lineups.
You can log into it on your phone (make sure locations are enabled) While you are in the store, you can report waiting times and availability of items like cleaning products and baby essentials. Even more handy, you can search for stores based on location and/or what they have in stock.
The wait times are only at select stores for now. Costco, No Frills, Zehrs, Sobeys and the LCBO are among the bigger chains that you can check out before you shop. Stores can be searched using the map function. There’s also a list format.
It’s also a great tool for store managers to use. By reporting on the wait times, managers can distribute the load of patrons. Or to let shoppers know when there are no lineups.

Report current waiting time and the availability of essential items at stores. Since the items are categorized into a limited list and it is optional to report items availability, it’s very simple to report while you are waiting in the long line or when you are inside the store & doing shopping. #livelineups #reportwaitingtime #reportstorestatus #crowdsource #essentialitems #panicshopping #longlineup #toronto #ontario #canada #northamerica #unitedstates #helpcommunity #covid19 #pandemic #socialdistancing #contactless
