What Planet K is doing to help and protect the health and welfare of our communities is to now offer “essentials” that include toiletries and cleaning supplies like toilet paper, hand sanitizers, hand soap, lotion, shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, floss, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, feminine hygiene products, deodorant, cough syrup, cough lozenges, and vitamins.
Along with food stuffs like flour, grains, rice, cornmeal, sugar, pasta, beans, canned and nut milks, peanut butter, pasta sauce, salsa, hot sauce, chips and crackers and other “convenience” items that are essential to our daily life.
That is how we take on the crisis, with positive action not with threats and intimidation that run roughshod over business and citizen’s civil rights.

“With this clarification, Planet K knows that we fall within the bounds of an Essential Business, and had re-opened our San Antonio stores,” the company’s statement read. “However, within hours, our San Antonio stores were ticketed and harassed into closing again based on some incorrect health department/legal department interpretations of the Governor’s order.”
“Planet K provides its customers household necessities including supplements, such as CBD and Kratom, that many have come to rely on to manage their health,” the statement read. “In addition, we now carry other basic needs such as toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and basic over the counter pharmaceuticals, that can be difficult to find at other retailers, including online. These needs become especially acute in times of high stress – like those brought about by a global pandemic.”
Planet K isn’t the only business that wants to stay open during the pandemic. Shops that sell CBD products, made by extracting non-intoxicating cannabidiol from the cannabis plant and used by some to treat stress and seizures, also have argued they should remain open, according to various media reports.
San Antonio law enforcement officials have seen 880 violations of Mayor Ron Nienberg’s order to stay home and close non-essential businesses to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, police department records show.
Four more citations, which can carry a fee of up to $2,000 or jail time, for Planet K were pending as of Friday. On Sunday, the City authorized the disconnection of electric, gas, and water utilities at an Austin Highway location. It’s the first and only time, so far, during the coronavirus outbreak that the City has revoked a certificate of occupancy.
The Texas Department of Emergency Management is handling requests for interpretation of the statewide order.
Agencies agreed not to ticket those willing to comply after a vast majority of businesses agreed to close after one or two warnings from officials. Only 11 citations were issued between March 18 – when Nirenberg ordered bars and restaurant dining areas to close – and April 3. Seven of those were issued to various Planet K smoke and gift shops, which refused to close its locations in San Antonio for weeks.
