Not sure you’ve understood what’s going on. Getting some timber for hobby / home projects is not an essential task.
I’ll not add anything to this thread from here on but as part of day job I’m trying to arrange who should / should not may have to live at a power station, away from family, to keep power on. That is essential. A sheet of 4x8 is not. They are making sacrifice so you don’t have to.
Just think about it for the few weeks / months it may take.

If they are able to take on-line orders and operate social distancing when they deliver, then why should they, or indeed we, be preached at by you? FFS. Get off your high horse.

They started by closing just the public counter and showroom, a few days later dropped all visitors other than for pre-order pickup, then went on to deliveries only, and today I see they've posted that they've closed until further notice.
I hope these places manage to survive this...
