Grocery stores and big-box retailers have made a ton of changes over the past couple of months as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, from shorter hours to senior shopping hours to making non-essential goods unavailable to customers.

Now, a number of chains have discontinued their weekly store ads — aka “circulars.” From concerns about available inventory to discouraging in-store foot traffic, retailers have varying reasons for stopping their circulars.
