JS Floor Store Giving Out Tubes For Socially Distant Candy Chutes
This has got to be one of the greatest ideas I have ever seen.
Celebrating Halloween amid the COVID-19 Pandemic does have a lot of people concerned and I can understand why.
Halloween parties, haunted houses and trick-or-treating are all activities that involve a lot of people crossing paths, touching various surfaces and ultimately transferring germs which is the last thing we want this spooky season.
Enter Marshal Fox, owner of the flooring store Fox Floors in Ocean Township, to save the day
Introducing the Socially Distance Candy Chute!
Marshall has been giving away the tubes used to roll up industrial lengths of carpet to NJ residents so candy can be collected from a safe distance.
“I saw some kind of candy shoot online and I think it was made out of PVC pipe or something," said Fox. "And I figured I have so many of these carpet tubes laying around, it’d be perfect to use for a candy shoot."
These tubes are free and Marshall cuts the tubes so they are just over 6-feet long himself!
Want to pick up a tube for your household? Here is all their information to get in touch:
Ocean Township, NJ 07712
So just to give you the visualization: The candy giver stands on one end of the tube and the candy collector stands on the other.
Candy and chocolate can be given out to trick-or-treaters and no one has to get closer than 6 feet to one another!
And the idea is clearly a good one because he has already given away 100 tubes.
“So many people are worried about Halloween getting canceled and this kind of promotes doing it the right way, so it’s fantastic,” said New Jersey resident, Maura Bannerman, who was picking up a tube.
Plus, if I may add, you could make it a fun, spooky activity to decorate these tubes so you are ready for Halloween.
Amazing idea, Marshall.
Ideas like this are exactly what we need to make it through 2020.
