The July 4 story “Japan's fussy food shoppers finally go online amid pandemic” was an interesting story for me.

Online shopping offers many people safety and convenience. During this pandemic, more people would like to stay home to avoid the “three Cs”: closed spaces, crowded places and close-contact settings. Indeed, the delivery service helps consumers reduce infections of the coronavirus. Also, demand for e-commerce is rapidly spreading since working people can save shopping time outside. Instead, they can relax more. The retailers prepare the items attentively to satisfy the consumers’ exacting standards for quality service and produce.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
