S. Korea's drive-thrus expand to fresh produce, fish and library books Updated: 2020-04-05 13:15:06 KST

These people are at the drive-thru to pick up their food but it's not burgers here, it's raw fish.
Noryangjin Fish Market started selling fish this way after their sales declined drastically because of COVID-19.
And customers seem to like the idea.

"I wouldn't have bought this if it wasn't a drive-thru. This is more convenient than I thought. I'll have them at home."

This is a library in Seoul.
The librarians have disinfected and sealed up these books, and now a car comes by and picks them up.

"I have a son in fifth grade, and even though he wants to read, he cannot go out. So, we're borrowing books from the drive-thru."

This drive-thru in the city of Seosan, Chungcheongnam-do Province is selling eco-friendly veggies.
These were supposed to be used for school meals, but they're left over because the opening of schools has been delayed.
Drivers can pay and pick up without getting out of the car.

"It's really convenient to get what I need without having to park. These eco-friendly vegetables are used for school meals, so I can trust them."

The drive-thru system is helping farmers that could have had a hard time selling their products.
Plus, it's a creative way to help small businesses at a time when people have to practice social distancing.
