Meat and vegetables sent into community to guarantee daily life
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- After the novel coronavirus outbreak, the demand for vegetables, meat and other daily necessities of the public increased. Facing the epidemic, a group of supermarket employees and community cadres fought in the front line, to ensure the supply of goods and services and the "basket" of our citizens always is abundant and sufficient at stable prices.
Yuzhong: Supermarket supply to isolation community
Next to the empty dam in Longquan Huayuan Community, Renmin Branch, Yuzhong District, there was a special supermarket goods place - Chongkelong Supermarket Life Supplies Station, providing more than 20 fresh products including cabbage, spinach, rice, pork and eggs on the six-meter-long stalls.
It opened at 9 a.m. on February 4, 2020, and 25 residents came to buy supplies in just ten minutes. Xia Jiuqun who is the manager of Daxigou Store of CGTG Chongkelong Supermarket and 3 employees were busy in picking up, weighing, settling accounts and delivering goods.
On January 28, 2020, a patient infected with the novel coronavirus was confirmed at Longquan Huayuan Community. Yuzhong District Committee and People’s Government took a series measures such as isolation, disinfection and physical examination for the community.
It is difficult to ensure the daily supplies of over 1300 residents of the community.
Upon hearing such news, Xia Jiuqun got contact with the sub-district, and applied to set up a supply station at the community. On the morning of January 19, 2020, Longquan Huayuan Life Supplies Station was officially established.
Meanwhile, Xia Jiuqun also specially built a WeChat Group named "Longquan Huayuan Owners". Every day, Xia Jiuqun and his employees solicited residents' opinions through WeChat Group, and provided various kinds of food such as vegetables, meat and fruit on demand, with the price exactly the same as that of Chongkelong Supermarket.
It is understood that CGTG has 25,000 employees every day to stick to their posts, to ensure the supply of goods and services.
Tongliang: It is more convenient to buy daily supplies in community
On the morning of February 5, 2020, inside the gate of Shiji Yangguang Community, Dongcheng Sub-district, Tongliang District, several tables were filled with fresh food such as vegetables and meat, and a simple stall opened in the community, attracting many residents wearing masks.
After the epidemic prevention and control, Tongliang urban residents actively responded to the government's call one after another and stay at home. But some communities have many residents who may suffer from hidden dangers when going out to buy food and daily necessities. Tongliang Supply and Marketing Cooperatives, in accordance with the deployment of the district, got contact with businesses to bag pork and vegetables and send to the community so as to be convenient for the masses to buy.
Tongliang Supply and Marketing Cooperatives and businesses also started the community owners group ordering. Residents could order through their mobile phones, and shop staff will deliver pork, vegetables and other daily necessities to their homes on the same day on the premise of protecting themselves.
